About Dr Eoin Clarke
Eoin Clarke graduated with a PhD in History from Queen’s University Belfast.
He works as an educational assessor and tutor in Nineteenth and Twentieth Century European History. Eoin founded The Green Benches website in 2010, and his site has been a regular feature in the UK Top Ten political websites rankings on E-Labz, reaching number 1 in Spring 2012. Eoin also founded Labour think tank Labour Left in April 2011. His motive for forming Labour Left was to work with colleagues to generate policies with an ethical socialist theme for inclusion in the 2015 Labour Party manifesto. To this end, Eoin also co-edited Labour Left’s Red Book in 2012. The policies contained in his Red Book chapter on Housing were presented at a Labour Party’s Top of the Policies event chaired by Shadow Housing Minister Jack Dromey in Westminster in May 2012, and his ideas were voted the most popular by his peers. Eoin is also a regular speech maker, and in the last year has spoken throughout the UK on matters of Housing, Poverty and Health.
“The Work that Eoin Clarke does is Brilliant. It is the work that others can’t or don’t do. He has led the way in showing what it is possible to achieve with Citizen Journalism.” Tom Watson MP
Debating the Thatcher Legacy will be published by Searching Finance in May 2013
