在关塔纳摩湾监狱

关塔纳摩湾-这篇文章,是我在在没有遭到任何指控的情况下,却几乎把我关押了七年时间的关塔纳摩湾美国拘留中心,写下的。

我被关押在关塔那摩是我在一个错误的时间出现在一个错误的地点的结果。在两年多前,有人告诉我,美国已经批准释放我了。如果我不是来自乌兹别克斯坦——世界上人权记录最糟糕的国家之一,我可能会对这个消息感到高兴。然而事实是,我却高兴不起来,因为对我来说,回到自己的祖国并不安全。

在我结束了在乌兹别克斯坦军队里的强制服役之后,在1998年12月份,我就开始了走向关塔纳摩的旅途了。曾是前苏联加盟共和国的乌兹别克斯坦,是一个贫穷的没有多少工作机会的国家。我结束了在乌兹别克斯坦军队的服役之后,花了几个月的时间找工作,最后,我和我的兄弟一起,在邻国塔吉克斯坦做起了买卖苹果、蜂蜜和其他货物的生意。我住在塔吉克斯坦的一个乌兹别克人居住区,在此期间,遇到了我的妻子法第玛,她也是一个乌孜别克人 。不久之后,我们有了一个孩子,我的母亲也从乌兹别克斯坦来到了塔吉克斯坦,和我们一起生活。

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. 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.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.
