在亚洲遵守游戏规则

堪培拉——中国的南海冒险主义已经促成了澳大利亚政策制定的改变,这一点应当引起国际社会的注意。本着以维护“以规则为基础的全球秩序”为核心战略任务的原则,澳大利亚最新发布的国防白皮书所采用的语言并非是国防章程核心段落表述所经常用到的。更令人意想不到的是新白皮书的始作俑者是一向热衷于追随美国的保守派政府。

澳大利亚想为挑战中国的主张寻找一个充分的理由,又不想被外界视为仅仅是本能地拥护美国的立场。对于美国、我们的经济伙伴中国和试图避免战略伙伴间上演零和游戏的澳大利亚(和该地区其他国家)而言,白皮书的措辞经过谨慎的选择并且值得其他国家效仿。

“以规则为基础的全球秩序”其吸引力部分在于能够限制所有的相关方。和世界多数其他国家决策者不同,美国的决策者对这一理念从本质上并不看好。尽管他们像其他人一样给予口头上的支持,但美国官员在基因当中并不愿意接受国际规则的束缚。

    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.
