De Goede’s research focuses on counter-terrorism and security practices in Europe, with a specific attention to the role of financial data. Between 2016 and 2022, she held a Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) with the theme: FOLLOW: Following the Money from Transaction to Trial (www.projectfollow.org). FOLLOW analysed the ways in which private companies operate in the frontline of security practice. This project followed the trajectory of suspicious financial transactions across private and public spheres. It studies the ‘chain of translation’ whereby a transaction is rendered from bank registration to suspicious transaction to court evidence.
De Goede is co-editor of Secrecy and Methods in Security Research, with Esme Bosma and Polly Pallister-Wilkins. She is author of Speculative Security (University of Minnesota press, 2012) co-editor (with Louise Amoore) of Risk and the War on Terror (Routledge, 2008). She co-edited the special issue on ‘The Politics of the List,’ in Environment and Planning D: Society and Space (with Anna Leander and Gavin Sullivan). Her articles have appeared in leading international studies journals, including for example Review of International Studies, European Journal of International Relations and Journal of Common Market Studies. De Goede regularly engages in policy debates on counter-terrorism financing in The Netherlands, for example with her WODC report Beleid bestrijding terrorismefinanciering. Effectiviteit en Effecten (with Mara Wesseling).
De Goede received her doctorate in International Politics from the University of Newcastle (UK) in 2001. She previously held the Vera List Fellowship at the Graduate Faculty of the New School University in New York (1997-1998) and a post-doctoral Fellowship of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) (2001-2003).
Risk and the War on Terror , Co-edited with Louise Amoore (2008)
Risk and the War on Terror offers an interdisciplinary set of contributions which debate and analyze both the empirical manifestations of risk inthe War on Terror and their theoretical implications. From border controls and biometrics to financial targeting and policing practice, the imperative to deploy public and private data in order to'connect the dots' of terrorism risk raises important questions for social scientists and practitioners alike.
Virtue, Fortune and Faith: A Genealogy of Finance , University ofMinnesota Press, 2005.
Less than two centuries ago finance-today viewed as the center of economic necessity and epitome of scientific respectability-stood condemned as disreputable fraud. How this change in status came about, and what it reveals about the nature of finance, is the story told in Virtue, Fortune, and Faith . A unique cultural history of modern financial markets from the early eighteenth century to the present day, the book offers a genealogical reading of the historical insecurities, debates, and controversies that had to be purged from nascent credit practices in order to produce the image of today's coherent and-largely-rational global financial sphere.

The volume offers a sustained theoretical dialogue on the meaning of discourse,identity, and representation for practices of political economy.
