印尼的民主伊斯兰

纽约——

原印尼居民、现任美国总统“巴里·奥巴马”(在印尼生活时的昵称)访问印尼首都雅加达。这次访问的其中一个重要目的是庆祝这个世上最大的穆斯林国家所取得的成就。印度尼西亚定期举行地方和国家选举,创造了运转良好的自由市场,对待印尼的基督徒、印度教徒、佛教徒以及华裔少数群体更加宽容。

在东南亚国家联盟的十大成员国中,只有印尼被“自由之家”组织评为“自由”等级。就为人民提供基本的民主权力而言,天主教为主体的菲律宾、佛教为主的泰国以及儒家为主的新加坡落后于印尼。因此,美国政策制定者希望印尼能成为穆斯林世界的模范。但是其他国家可以从印度尼西亚的民主体制中学到什么经验呢?

    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.
