为全民教育融资

纽约—在实现可持续发展所需要的所有投资中,没有一样比让所有孩子获得高质量教育更加重要。在基于知识的世界经济中,良好的教育对于找到体面工作、实现身体健康、构建运转良好的社区、发展成为可靠父母的技能以及成长为积极参与的负责任的公民来说是不可或缺的。

事实上,全世界最野蛮、最暴力的群体(如博科圣地等)攻击教育不足为奇。而授予马拉拉·尤沙夫赛(Malala Yousafzai)2014年诺贝尔和平奖也堪称实至名归。尤沙夫赛是一位巴基斯坦花季少女,因为勇敢地宣扬女孩受教育权而遭到塔利班的枪击。

今年9月,当世界各国政府启动可持续发展目标(Sustainable Development Goals,SDG)时,它们将正确地把全人类儿童的教育放在最优先的地位,与消灭极端贫困、饥饿和可防可治因素致死并驾齐驱。但是,尽管许多穷国增加了国内教育融资,但国际社会做得仍然不够。教育援助仍然太少,也太分散。

    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.
