不抛弃任何一名难民

纽约——世界民众流离失所的速度前所未有。2014年,冲突和迫害每天迫使42,500人逃离家园,是2010年的将近4倍。目前近6,000万人被迫流离失所——这是二战后前所未有的危机。

现状不可接受,但却并非无法避免。1945年,人类历史上最致命的冲突促成了联合国的建立。今天,身为联合国难民及发展机构负责人的我们呼吁世界积极应对目前史无前例的动荡,赋予人们重建生活必不可少的工具。我们相信前进之路始于2030年可持续发展目标,该目标是联合国为了兑现消除贫困和不平等斗争中“不抛弃任何一名难民”的承诺于去年9月一致通过的。

国际社会现行的流离失所政策主要依靠人道主义援助,其宗旨是在寻求永久解决方案的过程中提供快速赈济物资以挽救生命。但在现实中很难找到解决方案。2014年仅有1%的难民得以重返家园,而多数流离失所者不是流亡数天或数月,而是数年或数十年,甚至一生都无法重返家园。他们面临被抛弃的危险。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
