北约新模式

    柏林--北约需要一个新战略。我们五位前任总参谋长最近发表了一部小册子。这部小册子包含了这一新战略的建议以及变革的全面议程。

    为什么需要新战略呢?北约目前的“战略概念”是在1999年通过的,但是从那时以来世界发生了巨大的变化。在那时,北约是一个地区性联盟,集中于条约地区的被动防御。但是被动不再足够;今天最为迫切的任务是防止危机、武装冲突以及战争,这些可能会要求主要反应并非是军事手段。

    而且,北约在2002年布拉格会议上达成一致,它将在“必要的情况下”采取行动,从而放弃了仅仅是防御条约地区的限制。最后,尽管从2001年9/11恐怖事件以来得出教训,表明当今的各种冲突没有一个是可以单纯通过军事手段加以解决,但是北约的手段还是仅仅是军事方面。因此,任何北约有效的未来战略都必须包括制定和实施其他手段。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
