中国的非洲恶行

发自东京——随着利比亚国家过渡委员会试图在这个新近解放的国家建立政府,卡扎菲执政时的种种黑幕也逐渐被公诸于世。在的黎波里各处都发现了一些金库和储藏室,但这些地方已经被原来的主人匆忙地搬空了,而那些被虐待,被谋杀以及失踪者的遭遇也逐渐曝光。

与此同时,卡扎菲的某些最肮脏的外交秘密也被揭发出来。加拿大《环球邮报》在9月2日披露了陷入混战的卡扎非政权与一些和中国政府有直接联系的军火公司的谈判细节,其合同总值高达2亿美元。

这些合同粗暴践踏了1970年联合国安理会通过的利比亚武器禁运决议,而中国也是签署国之一。中国领导人否认这些秘密武器交易的有效性,并坚持说政府并未批准这类行为。但一份出差报告明确显示卡扎菲手下的安全官员曾分别与中国3个武器制造商会面,其中包括中国北方工业集团(Norinco),中国精密机械进出口总公司(CPMIC)和中国新兴进出口总公司。会面日程不但包括了这些公司的现有武器库存,还包括了中方在有需要的情况下额外提供武器的承诺。

    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.
