人魔之间

金边—第一位前“红色高棉”的领导人出现在柬埔寨的一个特别混合法庭。建立该法庭的目的是为了将“红色高棉”运动尚健在的领导人绳之以法。而这一亮相所激起的公众质疑将直接关乎该法庭的正义性:一个被控犯有大屠杀罪的人在受审期间能够从监狱里放出来么?

康克由,通常人称“杜赫”,在其主持下有14 000人在S-21监狱死去。该监狱是由金边的一所高中所改建的刑讯中心。他是前“红色高棉”的五个高级领导人之一,这些人都要为其在波尔布特大屠杀中所扮演的角色接受审判。在这次屠杀中有170万名柬埔寨人丧生。自从1999年暴露身份以后直到最近,杜赫是唯一一个被羁押的领导人。

这个法庭—以几乎不可能的方式集结了柬埔寨本国和外国的法官、律师及适用法律—旨在这个国家长久以来法律惩戒形同虚设的国家成为司法改革和司法独立的样板。

    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.
