欧洲近邻   是非之地

布鲁塞尔 ——

如今,哪一方面的议题才是俄罗斯与西方之间最主要的分歧之源呢?它并不是最常见于新闻报道中的伊朗或阿富汗问题,而是邻近欧洲的这块是非之地,即那些身处北约和欧盟东部边境与俄罗斯西部边境间的国家之未来。尽管西方与俄罗斯仍在口头上谈论着欧洲的合作安全,但争夺影响力的地缘政治竞赛已在这些区域重新拉开了序幕。

如今,俄罗斯公然宣布在其毗邻地区拥有利益范围;而此举直接违背了其在赫尔辛基进程中所做出的承诺。该国已经采纳了一套将北约视为威胁、并认为自己有权对这些国家进行干涉的政策与军事准则。俄国总统德米特里·梅德韦杰夫就欧洲安全所提出的新建议,尽管被包裹在圆滑的外交辞令之中,但人们还是不难发现其阻止并击退西方影响力的目标。

    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.

    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.
