Comment déjouer la stratégie de Poutine

MUNICH – Aussitôt finis les Jeux Olympiques d'hiver de Sotchi que la Russie a tourné le dos à l'esprit olympique en envahissant un pays étranger. En agressant l'Ukraine, le Kremlin a violé la Charte des Nations unies, l'Acte final d'Helsinki, ainsi que d'autres accords internationaux dont le Mémorandum de Budapest sur les garanties de sécurité et l'accord russo-ukrainien sur la flotte de la Mer noire qui fixaient le cadre des relations entre les deux pays.

La Crimée a été transformée en une zone militaire, et si l'escalade se poursuit, ses habitants se trouveront bientôt pris dans la ligne de feu. La Russie se retrouve maintenant isolée sur la scène internationale, ce qui aggrave ses difficultés économiques. Le jeu dangereux du Kremlin pourrait conduire le monde sur une pente dangereuse.

Du fait de la politique risquée de Poutine, il faut que l'Occident reconsidère sa position à son égard. Voilà un dirigeant qui voit dans un document technique de l’Union européenne sur les subventions aux exportations et des dispositions anti-fraudes une machination dressée contre lui. Plus largement, c'est un paranoïaque qui imagine une coalition improbable rassemblant des libéraux russes, des fascistes ukrainiens, la CIA et des terroristes islamistes pour le déstabiliser, voire le renverser s'ils le peuvent.

    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.
