印度入驻联合国安理会

新德里——

2011年,印度被选为联合国反恐委员会主席国,由此拉开新年外交的序幕。反恐委员会对印度来说有些重要性(此前许多人认为,鉴于印度在反恐问题上过于情绪化,它可能不会被选为主席国)。而就在此前不久,印度以破纪录的票数成功获得了安理会非常任理事国席位,如今又有新收获,这证明了印度在世界上的地位,也表明了印度能在安理会中做出贡献。然而获得如此大的认可意味着外界对印度的期望也很高,印度政府要考虑如何最好地实现这些期望。

今年对联合国安理会来说是个不寻常的一年。有几个全球地位日渐提升的强国渴望在改革后的安理会获得常任理事国席位,它们将与印度在今年的安理会中共事——在印度获得席位的同时,德国和南非也获选成为非常任理事国,而巴西和尼日利亚离两年的任期届满还有一年。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
