Louise Haagh is Professor in Politics at the University of York. Her work looks at problems relating to social and economic justice, the ethics and politics of development, comparative capitalism and welfare states, and human development ethics and governance. A particular interest is the link between institutions and well-being and in the formative role of motivational theories and statistical measurement in comparative public policy.

More recently, her work centres on governing properties of comparative welfare state evolution, with a contemporary focus on Anglo-Liberal and Nordic states. She has acted as expert on economic security for a range of international organisations, including the World Bank, the Council of Europe, the World Health Organisation, and the Organisation of American States.
