Una agenda para los refugiados en la cumbre del G20

DHAKA – Cada día un promedio de 34.000 personas se ven obligadas a huir de desastres naturales o causados por el hombre. Solo en los últimos seis meses, más de 2000 vidas se han perdido en el Mediterráneo; el último fin de semana de junio 12.600 migrantes pisaron suelo italiano, al que habían llegado por mar. Las presiones financieras y políticas abruman a los países de Oriente Próximo, África y Europa que reciben esta ola humana. Lamentablemente, en muchos casos no hay en camino ayuda alguna.

La escala actual de la migración forzada ha revelado serias brechas en las organizaciones que, se suponía, actuarían como última línea de defensa. Debido a mandatos débiles, financiación insuficiente, estructuras desorganizadas y la falta de un sistema de gobernanza global se ha afectado la capacidad de estas agencias para actuar a nombre de los más vulnerables.

Como argumento en Alemania esta semana, los líderes que se reúnen en Hamburgo para la Cumbre del G20 el 7 y 8 de julio tendrán la oportunidad de dar nueva forma al sistema de gobernanza migratoria con políticas de protección proactivas que mejoren la confianza en el liderazgo internacional. Si bien en las cumbres pasadas estos temas han sido poco más que puntos de conversación, esta vez las perspectivas son mejores, ya que el debate se llevará a cabo en Europa, donde el impacto de la crisis se ha hecho sentir con mucha intensidad

    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.
