阿塞拜疆是否会成为下一个?

随着阿塞拜疆为11月6日举行的议会选举做好了准备,主要的问题集中在该国是否也会步过去两年间推翻了后苏联高层人物的格鲁吉亚、乌克兰和吉尔吉斯斯坦的后尘爆发“色彩”革命。这种可能性无法排除,但如果论及前景至多也就是不能确定。

尽管拥有伊尔哈姆·阿利耶夫总统的支持和优先使用国家资源的权利,阿塞拜疆执政党新阿塞拜疆党仍然面临着全面的挑战。伊萨·甘巴尔的穆萨瓦特党、克瑞姆里的人民阵线党以及阿塞拜疆的民族独立党等至少三个反对派政党从伊尔哈姆2003年接替他已故的父亲盖达尔·阿利耶夫担任总统后就一直保持着自己的支持力量和政治影响。

更有甚者,与格鲁吉亚、乌克兰和吉尔吉斯斯坦一样,阿塞拜疆的王朝政治是各个家族势力的反映,而家族势力的强弱又取决与家族成员与总统的密切关系。尽管这样的体系看起来非常稳固,但从本质上讲却十分脆弱,因为对大多数人来讲,无法无天、缺乏公正和一贫如洗与上述体系如影随形。

    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.
