学校教育与巴基斯坦社会变革

伊斯兰堡—教育,尤其是学校教育的重要性怎么强调都不过分。中小学教育的普及与加快经济增长、减少贫困和增强收入平等直接相关,而教育更是与社会的多样化和包容性、人力资本的升级、机会的增加以及自由与福利的巩固紧密相关。因此,作为巴基斯坦总理,我将教育普及作为国家日程的重中之重。

教育影响人们认识周边世界、理解问题以及寻找问题解决方案的方式。教育让人们更加能够认识到他们的权利与义务,影响他们如何在社区内与人互动以及与国家和国家机构互动。最重要的是,教育让人们能够批判性思考和质疑传统智慧,从而让他们超越偏见、传说和历史传统的桎梏。

从这个角度讲,教育是社会进步的重要推动力量。教育也是实现我在两年前开始执政时所作的承诺的关键——为巴基斯坦建立新的社会变化框架,这个框架将确保所有国民机会公平和社会正义,停止剥削穷人、阻碍他们发挥潜力。

    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.
