中东的教育创新

伦敦——支持数百万最近流离失所的中东民众需要远超联合国提供能力的资源,为企业、基金和公共部门捐助者提出了持续的人道主义援助难题。虽然联合国维和人员融资采用“分摊会费”制,但人道主义援助仍然依赖自愿捐款。教育因为优先顺序排在食品及住所等基本生活需求之下,因此往往得不到所需的资源。

这样的状态比乍看上去更加危险。事实上,我们现在面临的教育危机是一代迷失的年轻人可能没有任何希望创造更美好的未来。叙利亚六百多万流离失所儿童绝大多数依然没有学上,而无法接受大学教育的年轻人约为250,000。在饱受战争蹂躏的也门和伊拉克,同样有高达数百万的失学儿童。有些人可能在整个学龄期都没有机会走进学校。

但多亏有了紧急状况响应教育平台,慈善机构、慈善家和基金会可以团结起来帮助难民学生寻找机会接受高等教育,并为遭受叙利亚总统巴沙尔·阿萨得政权迫害的教授和讲师们提供安全避难所。紧急状况响应教育平台可以把想上大学的叙利亚难民和愿意接收难民的大学联系在一起,而且终将成为全世界各年龄段流离失所学生接受高等教育的网络渠道。

    A Tax Plan that’s All Stuffing?

    US President Donald Trump has set a Christmas deadline for enacting the Republican tax plan, and economic observers are virtually unanimous in judging it a turkey. A scheme that squeezes the middle class and blows out the fiscal and current-account deficits may pass, but it will never fly.

    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.

    The Dangers of Nuclear Bombast

    US President Donald Trump has refused to recertify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, an agreement that he once predicted would "lead to a nuclear holocaust." Unfortunately, by creating more perverse incentives for hostile regimes to pursue nuclear armaments at all costs, Trump has made the nightmare scenario he fears even more likely.

    Insider Interview

    • With right-wing populists ascendant in Poland and Hungary, and gaining ground elsewhere in the European Union, politics in some parts of the West looks increasingly like politics in Russia.

    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.
