迈向新伊斯兰黄金时代

沙迦——穆斯林世界过去在科学教育领域所做的贡献是非凡的。学术和知识在整个穆斯林世界快速发展的伊斯兰“黄金时代”长达几个世纪,并导致世界首批大学的诞生。但今天,穆斯林多数国家在教育和研究方面远远落后于世界其他地区。该地区要想为其蓬勃发展的人口提供现代就业机会和更好的生活、跟上全球发展就必须改变这样的现状。

按照现在的情况,穆斯林世界只有土耳其中东技术大学一所大学跻身国际排名百强, 仅有十来所大学能够登上其他排行榜的四百强。 尽管大学阶段还没有科学及数学领域的国际标准测试,但穆斯林世界的四年级、八年级和十年级学生在上述学科领域的考试成绩低于世界平均分,这是国际数学和科学研究趋势国际学生评估计划共同的统计结果。不仅如此,穆斯林世界与其他国家学生的差距仍在拉大。

此外,国际期刊发表、引述和专利数量显示,穆斯林世界的研究成果相对于其人口和经济能力低得不成比例。穆斯林世界平均将GDP的约0.5%用于研发,而全球均值为1.78%,经合组织国家均值达到2%以上。穆斯林世界就职于科技领域的人口数量远低于世界平均水平。

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
