How much do we really know about how our government spends money beyond our borders? While there has been much talk about the money spent on development and humanitarian causes, international public spending is a much larger and more complex enterprise, encompassing military interventions, investment in research, cross border crime control and much more. While such ventures are beset by problems, they have also proven to be the source of much innovation and positive investment. Spending Beyond Our Borders goes beyond the current focus on development aid to consider the impact of 'international public finance' (IPF) more broadly. From global health funds to investment in green infrastructure, IPF is rapidly evolving in response to the challenges of the modern world. Jonathan Glennie and Gail Hurley argue that aligning IPF with the wider objectives of international development will be crucial if we are to fulfil the United Nation's new Sustainable Development Goals, and will require wider recognition of the invaluable contribution that international spending has made to our shared interests.
