阿富汗之改革当由其国人领导

纽约——

尽管本次总统选举的胜利最终花落谁家目前尚不确定,但阿富汗民众对于更加负责任的领导层的渴望,已经通过大选清晰地展现出来。不过同样清楚的还有:这种心愿远未得到满足,而且该国糟糕的治理状况正在为国际介入行动打下危机四伏的脆弱根基。

除非阿富汗政府本身获得了成功,否则美国及其盟友将碍难在该国取得胜利。尽管美国国会已发出了恰当的号召,要求为美国在阿富汗所取得之进展创设衡量基准;但却鲜有人士要求阿富汗政府明确阐述其在改进治理状况与负责程度方面的目标,以及它对实现这些目标有何打算。在阿富汗政府采取行动、而国际支援也与阿富汗在实现由其国人所设定的目标方面的进展挂上钩之前,该国国家机构的声誉将每况愈下。那样的话,无论资金援助或国际军事存在的规模有多大,想在阿富汗取得有意义的胜利都将会变得希望渺茫。

    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.
