不完美的苏丹和平

发自斯坦福——美国终于还是出手了。奥巴马总统派参议员约翰·克里携一份南北和平方案奔赴苏丹,而此举堪称避免该国重陷血腥冲突的一项重大举措,曾经历时20年的南北内战夺去了超过200万苏丹人的生命,一直到2005年才宣告终结,而如今却似乎又有死灰复燃之势。

近几个月来,奥巴马进一步加大了其本人及属下高级官员对苏丹和平战略的干涉力度。作为总统代表,克里提出了一揽子解决方案,旨在打破当前南北之间的僵局,把双方从危险的悬崖边拉回来。

With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.
