Global Nation is a think/do tank focused on improving international cooperation to tackle humanity’s greatest challenges: human development, climate change and conflict. Our founders, Hassan Damluji and Jonathan Glennie, are respected thinkers and actors in global policy and advocacy for sustainable development, with leadership experience across many themes and sectors.
Global Nation advises many of the world’s leading institutions, including the Gates Foundation, WHO, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the Wellcome Trust, and national governments. We also receive grant funding to pursue thought-leadership and movement-building for a fairer international system. This includes our work to build the Global Public Investment (GPI) movement and the Global Solidarity Report, a scorecard that is, for the first time, measuring the international community’s ability to tackle and withstand our generational challenges, whether climate change, pandemics, or major-power conflict.
