为奴一百天

伦敦—今天,世界各地举行游行铭记200名尼日利亚女学生被伊斯兰极端组织博科圣地(Boko Haram)绑架第100天。自4月份她们遭遇绑架以来,全球的愤怒之情从未减弱;相反,还在世界范围内掀起了一场捍卫所有女孩基本权利的运动。

来自与童婚、拐卖儿童和童工作斗争的组织的宣传者,以及来自主张儿童上学权和免受威吓权的组织的宣传者在过去几天中联合展现了全球对全民教育和不存在儿童奴役的世界的强烈愿望。

但长期影响力更大的是女孩自身要求她们的权利得到认真对待。孟加拉国的女孩行动起来,建立无童婚区的运动正在如火如荼地展开;印度的女孩行动起来,开始了全球反童工游行(Global March Against Child Labor);非洲的女孩行动起来,几乎每个国家都在建立儿童保护组织。

    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.

    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.
