乌克兰:欧洲的战略枢纽

柏林 —— 有人说,革命到头来总会吞噬自己的儿女。就“颜色革命”而言,这显然不假。先是格鲁吉亚,如今轮到了乌克兰。 2004 年“橙色革命”的英雄,乌克兰总统尤先科,在几周以前的首轮总统选举中落败,只拿到了 6% 的选票。

此前的形势是,乌克兰的自由之春已经退化成一种明显的发展停滞,政府的无能和腐败引发了变革的呼声。无论其余的候选人谁最终当选,是现任总理季莫申科抑或亚努科维奇,橙色革命的历史一页肯定会就此翻过。

所以,现在值得回顾一下,想当年,基辅市中心的独立广场那些激动人心的日日夜夜、尤先科的最终当选,牵出了多少 憧憬 和希望。那是民主和独立对舞弊和强权的胜利。

    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.
