安倍晋三的亚洲支点

伦敦——过去一年中,东亚三大最成功经济体——日本、韩国和中国——之间的关系一直在缓慢而稳步地攀升。这一点应该引起注意,因为上述三国间的彼此关系从未呈现过顺利和轻松。二十世纪和它们长期对抗的历史造就了现在这种状况。

今年八月,日本首相安倍晋三在二战结束70周年纪念仪式上的致辞要么将加速和解、要么将结束和解进程。鉴于他的右翼血统和对日本侵略史的修正主义看法,该地区恐怕要准备面对由他讲话引发的新一轮外交动荡。

安倍应该记住他能够带来截然不同的结果。而且,虽然根本不发表讲话可能是最明智的对策,他仍然可以利用这个机会巩固日本作为亚洲积极力量的国家形象。他应当煞费苦心地向世界证明日本是一个展望未来、而非纠结过去的大国,他应当让人们看到日本希望促进世界和平、安全与经济发展——尤其是在亚洲内部。

    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.

    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.
