2030年教育路线图

伦敦—今年早些时候,我访问了位于约旦的扎塔里(Zaatari)难民营。我遇见了一些儿童,他们告诉我教育对他们意味着什么。对被迫离开家园、失去一切的叙利亚年轻人来说,教育的意义远不止合格或分数;而是寄托着对未来的希望。

扎塔里难民营以及全世界的数百万儿童是全球教育机会融资国际委员会(International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity)工作的核心。我在去年9月加入了该委员会,它致力于联合国可持续发展目标中的第四项,即到2030年“确保包容和平等的高质量教育并推动全人类的终身学习机会。”

对于太多的儿童而言,这个目标仍然遥不可及。有如此多的发展问题需要我们关注,决策者应该时刻铭记,教育不但本身是一种好东西(good);而且也是其他众多发展收益的催化剂。

    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.
