Jonathan Glennie argues that the ‘foreign aid’ mentality is outdated and sets out a new approach for the 21st century: global public investment.
The language and theory of ‘aid’ is outdated. But something like it is still needed as the world faces huge common challenges, new and old. In this keynote address, Jonathan Glennie sets out a new approach for the 21st century: global public investment. He proposes five paradigm shifts for the future of concessional international public finance, as the world of international development moves on from an old-fashioned ‘aid’ mentality.
