关闭关塔那摩监狱背后的欧洲利益

发自布鲁塞尔——多年以来,欧盟一直高调呼吁要关闭关塔那摩监狱,而今美国总统奥巴马也已下定决心照此办理,对此欧盟则准备好了向美国提供政治和现实上的支持,以确保美方能顺利达到这项目标。

对于奥巴马对关塔那摩监狱的评估结论,我们也深有同感,奥巴马指出“关塔那摩监狱已经变成了基地组织借以招募恐怖分子的一个象征。而事实上,关塔那摩监狱的存在似乎制造了比关押在内的囚犯数目更多的恐怖分子。”欧盟对此也相信,我们在防止宗教极端主义和打击恐怖分子招募活动方面的利益,和美国是一致的。

虽然关闭关塔那摩监狱并重新安置其囚犯的首要责任在美国人身上,但欧洲人也希望能从旁给予协助。这也解释了下面一些行为:几个欧盟成员国重新接收了那些关押在关塔那摩监狱的本国公民和居留者;法国最近接收一个曾经入狱的阿尔及利亚籍囚犯;而另外几个欧盟成员国正考虑接收那些被排除了恐怖嫌疑,却因为某些不可抗因素而难以回到其所属国的囚犯。至此欧盟人希望美国也能采取同样的行动:如果在欧洲释放这些囚犯是安全的,那么在美国应该也一样。

    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.

    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.
