叙利亚决议的失败

马德里——10月2日,各路叙利亚反对运动在伊斯坦布尔朝着成立“叙利亚国家委员会”又迈进了一步。这是这些各自为政的势力自5月份开始试图领导一场针对总统阿萨德政权的和平起义以来所迈出的最重要的一步。叙利亚国家委员会的成立鼓舞了那些一直在要求更强大、更团结的代表的人的士气。

但成立仅仅两天后,尚在雏形中的委员会就遭遇了第一次重大挫折。法国、英国、德国和葡萄牙联合美国一起向联合国安理会递交了一份叙利亚决议草案,谴责叙利亚的镇压行为,要求叙利亚停止对平民动用武力。

该草案是去年6月提出的方案的糖衣版,使用了“特别措施”、“其他选择”等模棱两可的字眼。该草案强调叙利亚的主权、独立和领土完整,强调当前危机需要通过包容性政治议程和平解决,并呼吁进行叙利亚内部的国民对话。该草案提出用30天时间来研究各种选择,而去年6月的方案只给了15天。

    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.
