肯尼亚的宪法现实主义

内罗毕——

经过漫长的岁月后,肯尼亚终于拥有了新宪法。在之前几十年中,我们都无法获得新宪法,即使几乎所有人知道新宪法是必要的。这次对新宪法的全民公决中,人们十分和平地投了票——而仅在几年前,我的祖国被极度争议的总统选举所摧残——这同样值得庆祝。投票中避免暴力的肯尼亚人着重显示了我们可以和平解决彼此之间的争议。

肯尼亚的新宪法之路是漫长且痛苦的。当总统姆瓦伊·齐贝吉在2002年首次竞选总统的时候,他承诺如果连任,他的政府将在当权后的100天内通过一部新宪法。在曾为诸如阿富汗等国编写宪法的知名的肯尼亚法律学者Yash Pal Ghai的带领下,肯尼亚国家宪法会议开始了。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
