欧洲的圣战一代

马德里——他来自阿尔及利亚,想要过上更好的生活,憧憬着从贫困、压迫和绝望中摆脱。他在巴黎找到了一份技术要求不高的工作,之后生育子孙。身为法国公民,他们拥有接受教育和医疗的权利。但却在环绕法国各大城市的贫民窟中长大,可以说身处社会边缘,周围都是和他们境况类似的家庭。因为始终无法完全融入,他们鲜有机会取得经济上的成功。他们从未得到想象中的天堂。

同样的故事在西欧国家已经重复了数百万次,那里的移民及家庭过着被排斥的贫困生活。最坏情况下,他们被看似为其提供所缺元素的极端组织招募,因为极端组织为他们提供了无法获得的归属感、认同感和目的感。在终其一生无法融入主流社会后,参与更宏伟的事业似乎值得付出谎言、自我毁灭乃至死亡的代价。

在挫败针对巴黎讽刺杂志查理周刊和比利时的另一次恐怖袭击后,欧洲需要认真地审视自身。我们必须认识到第二和第三代移民很容易受到恐怖组织花言巧语的蛊惑,因为成为欧洲公民并没有为他们带来社会和经济领域的包容。如果一定要说有什么,那么因多年危机而不断加剧的不平等正在使问题变得更加糟糕。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
