暴力威胁下的阿富汗妇女

发自喀布尔——最近阿富汗独立人权委员会(AIHRC)在库都兹省(Kudoz)的办事处报告了一起营救事件。年仅15岁的莎哈尔·古尔(Sahar Gul)先是被迫嫁给一名年纪比她大的阿富汗军人,随后又被夫家人强迫卖淫,她不从,于是就被锁在地牢里残酷虐待了整整七年,直至被营救出来。

在过去十年间,委员会收到了超过1.9万件与虐待妇女有关的申诉。尽管在调查这些申诉并移交司法机关的提升了公众对该事务关注度方面取得了一些进展,但我们所面对的挑战依然非常艰巨。

自2002年以来,各界在改善阿富汗妇女待遇方面作出了许多努力。国家也颁布了一系列新法并建立了一个相当先进的法律框架来结束对妇女的歧视,其中包括一部能将任何针对妇女的暴力行为定罪的法律。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
