L'évolution de l'éducation en l'Europe

DUBLIN – L'Europe est aux prises avec de grands défis - trop grands pour qu'un seul pays y réponde. Face à la crise économique, au chômage généralisé et la concurrence croissante des pays en développement, l'Europe doit s'adapter aux progrès technologiques et aux nouveaux modes de travail, alors le vieillissement de la population exerce une pression croissante sur des fonds publics épuisés. Dans ce contexte fragile, l'Union européenne doit se concentrer sur l'éducation afin de nourrir les talents et les capacités et surtout pour stimuler la reprise économique et sociale.

L'éducation est la clé non seulement de meilleurs emplois et d’une meilleure croissance du PIB, mais aussi pour que les développements culturel, politique et social nécessaires pour s'assurer que les citoyens s'épanouissent soient assez solides au niveau local, national et international. En se concentrant sur les bonnes mesures, les dirigeants de l'Europe peuvent veiller à ce que l'éducation des Européens leur permettre d'être des citoyens du monde bien intégrés et de puissants acteurs économiques.

La bonne nouvelle est que les dirigeants européens semblent reconnaître la juste valeur de la connaissance. Lors de l'allocation des fonds dans le budget européen 2014-2020, les gouvernements européens ont judicieusement décidé d'augmenter le financement pour l'éducation et de la recherche - les seuls domaines pour lesquels ils l'ont prévu une augmentation. Cet engagement pour la sauvegarde de l'éducation et pour le financement de la recherche doit se traduire à tous les niveaux de l'élaboration des mesures.

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
