Le Centrisme l’a emporté en Israël

JERUSALEM – Les élections israéliennes consacrent la victoire du centrisme et du consensus national, qui donnent les clefs, non seulement pour bien interpréter le décompte des voix, mais aussi pour pouvoir apprécier l’opinion publique israélienne, se représenter le prochain gouvernement et s’expliquer ses choix politiques.

La plupart des Israéliens se sont forgés, de par leur expérience, une conception du monde faite d’un mélange de traditions de gauche et de pensée de droite. En contrepartie d’une paix véritable et durable, ils sont prêts d’un côté à fournir une solution politique globale, fondée sur la création d’un Etat palestinien. Mais de l’autre, ils ont conscience de ne pas avoir en face d’eux un leadership palestinien assez fort ou modéré, à même d’y parvenir.

La gauche et la droite ont, l’une comme l’autre, fait fausse route. La première a beaucoup concédé et s’est montrée prête à prendre de gros risques au nom de la paix. Mais face à des forces aussi radicalisées que l’Iran, la Syrie, le Hamas et le Hezbollah, qui toutes ont juré la destruction d’Israël, il est impossible d’envisager un accord fiable. L’Autorité palestinienne a beau être moins excessive, elle manque de poids, le contrôle de Gaza lui échappe et elle compte toujours dans ses rangs des partisans de la ligne dure.

    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.
