被破坏的叙利亚儿童承诺

伦敦—如果你失去了希望的力量——更不用说永不放弃的重要性——你应该用穆罕默德·科沙(Mohammed Kosha)的故事激励自己。这位16岁的叙利亚难民现在生活在黎巴嫩,为了取的好成绩,他克服了大部分人难以想象的困难。世界领导人应该引起注意。

四年前,穆罕默德和全家为了躲避叙利亚武装力量持续不断的炮击而逃离了位于大马士革市郊达尔亚(Darya)镇的家。在家乡,由于上学太危险,他已经落下了一年小学功课,当全家到达他们现在居住的黎巴嫩后,他又有一年时间没能上学。

黎巴嫩政府向难民开放本国公立学校后,穆罕默德的生活发生了变化。教室拥挤不堪,授课用的是英语,这意味着他必须得学习一门新语言。但穆罕默德抓住了学习的机会,一头扎进了功课中。上个月,排除万难的他在黎巴嫩初中升学考试中取得第二名的好成绩。他的故事还没有完。

    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.
