GDI Lecture Series: Why we can now win on global financial governance
Many of us have been working for decades to try to shift the architecture of global public finance, but have struggled to make only small changes. In 2021 the context has changed, making significant structural evolutions possibly - although still far from certain.

In this talk we will look at why there is hope for a more legitimate and effective public finance architecture. He will also present the basic features of the new Global Public Investment initiative, which seeks to shift the way the world thinks about aid, global goods and international cooperation.

Speaker: Jonathan Glennie is a writer, researcher, campaigner and consultant on sustainable development, inequality and poverty. His work looks in particular at the changing nature of international cooperation as dominant paradigms and global economic relationships evolve. He has held senior positions in several international organisations including: Ipsos, Save the Children, ODI and Christian Aid and heled setup The Guardian's Global Development website, for which he is a regular columnist.

As a consultant, he has worked with governments, international agencies and civil society organisations as they renew strategies for a new era. His latest book, The Future of Aid: Global Public Investment, was published by Routledge in November 2020. He lives with his family in Colombia.
