伊斯兰福音传教

很多人相信:西方国家穆斯林们的宗教复兴和政治激进反映了中东地区、或是更广阔的穆斯林世界的传统与矛盾。但伊斯兰沙拉菲主义(原教旨主义宗教激进分子)首先是伊斯兰教全球化和西方化、以及更为广义的文化与宗教分离的恶果。

所有形式的原教旨主义都有赖于一种"纯粹"的宗教观,它不受文化改变的影响而独立存在。今天的伊斯兰复兴运动与美国福音传教运动有着共同的特点:信奉教条主义、倡导共产主义、推崇圣经主义,而且同样对文化、哲学甚至神学持否定的态度,而信奉神圣经文的字面意义,推崇通过个人的虔诚信仰到达顿悟的境界。

这在最近西方出版的书籍中都有所反映,其中包括《究竟什么是伊斯兰教?》、《身为穆斯林意味着什么?》、和《如何感知伊斯兰教?》。即使心里并不情愿,在阿富汗、巴基斯坦和埃及的斋月中斋戒也还算容易,但居住在西方的穆斯林却不得不面对宗教客观化的难题。对那些需要苦苦搜寻不再与特定文化相联的纯粹教条的信奉者,像乌里玛这样的宗教学者恐怕也不会有太大的帮助。

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
