El gobierno de Putin en Donbas

STANFORD – En marzo, el tabloide alemán Bild publicó un artículo basado en un documento secreto que revela que las zonas separatistas del este de Ucrania "están siendo tratadas como partes del territorio soberano de Rusia". Las revelaciones arrojan una nueva luz sobre las negociaciones de paz Minsk 2 en curso -una luz que ilumina la frustración expresada por el gobierno ucraniano.

El documento obtenido por Bild es un informe de una reunión de octubre de la "Comisión Interministerial para la Provisión de Ayuda Humanitaria para las Zonas Afectadas en el Sudeste de las Regiones de Donetsk y Luhansk" de Rusia. El texto describe que los asistentes a la reunión no sólo se concentraron en la asistencia humanitaria; más bien funcionaron como una suerte de gobierno en las sombras. Se establecieron grupos de trabajo en cooperación con las autoridades rusas para gestionar las finanzas, las políticas económicas, la infraestructura de energía y transporte y el comercio de la región.

Curiosamente, la reunión tuvo lugar bajo la mirada atenta de cuatro miembros de la policía secreta rusa (FSB) y fue presidida por el político ruso Sergey Nazarov. Los jefes titulares de las Repúblicas Populares de Donetsk y Luhansk no estaban presentes. De hecho, el único asistente ucraniano era un representante del gigante energético DTEK, propiedad de Rinat Akhmetov, el oligarca más rico del país.

    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.
