Poner fin a la tragedia de Darfur

Las extremas condiciones de vida que sigue habiendo en Darfur están causando un inmenso sufrimiento a su pueblo. Ambos lados del conflicto –el gobierno de Sudán y sus fuerzas aliadas, así como los grupos de oposición en Darfur- deben comprender que es imperativo que los civiles dejen de ser víctimas de sus disputas políticas.

La anuencia del gobierno de Sudán al despliegue de la misión híbrida de las Naciones Unidas y la Unión Africana, que tiene por objetivo mantener la paz en la región, es por supuesto un acontecimiento bienvenido. Sin embargo, su mandato debe ser lo suficientemente sólido como para permitir la completa protección de la población civil. Más aún, esa fuerza debe tener suficiente dotación de hombres, capacidad y financiamiento como para poner este vital objetivo en la práctica de manera eficaz. Los países e instituciones que han comprometido fondos adicionales para ayudar a asegurar el éxito de esta misión –en particular Francia, España y la Comisión Europea- deben ser aplaudidos.

Es importante que los actores internacionales den seguridades al gobierno de Sudán de que la misión de la ONU/UA no buscará un cambio de régimen en el país ni excederá su mandato de mantener la paz. Al mismo tiempo, el gobierno sudanés debe estar plenamente cierto de que sólo adhiriendo a sus compromisos pasados y cooperando para ayudar a preparar, desplegar y mantener esta misión la comunidad internacional se sentirá inclinada a continuar apoyándolo.

    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.
