让联合国代表自由

我的家乡瑞典一直对联合国恭敬有加。但是如今,和世界其他地方的人们一样,许多瑞典人却要再作考虑。三个事件引发了这种怀疑。

第一件事就是十年前发生在卢旺达的大屠杀,100天内800,000多人惨遭杀戮,这恐怕是有史以来速度最快的种族屠杀。保存良好的纪录显示,那时的联合国副秘书长科菲·安南下令所有在卢旺达的联合国士兵不得干预或保护难民。就在这个重大失误之后,那个安南被提升为联合国秘书长,这至今令人费解。

眼下的联合国石油换食品计划丑闻加重了人们联合国对联合国以及安南个人的质疑。尽管目前为止相关报道并没有直接暗示安南,但是他的管理失策却显而易见。

    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.
