The geopolitics of development spending

General Policy

Jon Garvie, Miranda Lutz, Stephen Adams and Jens Presthus take a deep-dive into the growing prominence of infrastructure spending, exploring how and why it is becoming a geopolitical fault-line between the West and China.

They focus in particular on the prospects for the three major overlapping initiatives announced last year - US Build Back Better, EU Global Gateway and the UK Clean Growth Initiative - and assess whether a more strategic, values-driven approach is on the horizon.
