FIFA综合征

伦敦—以多起欺诈和腐败指控拘捕FIFA(国际足联)高官成为近几天来媒体关注的焦点。但瑞士和美国当局提起的指控集中在贿赂和侵吞公款上,并没有解决另一种臭名昭著的不公:在卡塔尔为2022年FIFA世界杯建设足球场的移民工人的待遇。

大赦国际(Amnesty International)最近公布了一份关于卡塔尔糟糕情况的报告。工人在不安全的工地工作,遭受招工头盘剥,无从寻求形式正义。最近,尼泊尔劳工部长公开批评卡塔尔不许尼泊尔民工回国为2015年4月地震死难亲属奔丧。

大赦国际指出,责任主要在卡塔尔当局。但FIFA也有行动责任——过去有,现在也有。已经有人要求赞助商,包括麦当劳、维萨、可口可乐、阿迪达斯、百威、俄天然气、起亚和现代,向FIFA和卡塔尔施压,要求它们改善工作条件。

    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.
