巴勒斯坦,四分五裂的家庭

乔治·W·布什总统呼吁以色列、巴勒斯坦和支持“两国并立模式”的周边国家举行新一轮的和平谈判,这一进展虽然比预想中的更加迟缓,但也理当受到人们的欢迎。但重启和平进程的努力目前却碰到了新的僵持局面:那就是必须将哈马斯领导的加沙和法塔赫领导的西岸这两个互相敌对的巴勒斯坦团体同时纳入到和平进程中来。

哈马斯/法塔赫的对峙标志着巴勒斯坦政治局势发生了戏剧性的改变,截至到目前为止,巴勒斯坦政治的重中之中一直是结束以色列占领,建立独立的巴勒斯坦国。这种变化也使和平谈判的复杂性大大增加,而和谈是巴勒斯坦人和“四方集团”(美国、欧盟、联合国和俄罗斯)赖以维系加沙地带和西岸地区统一的根基所在。

颇具讽刺意味的是,这些地区是在经历了长达19年的分裂后,在以色列赢得1967年战争后获得了重新统一。此前,埃及统治着加沙,而约旦则吞并了西岸。在以色列占领下,随着巴勒斯坦民族权力机构(PA)1994年的成立,上述地区在地理上仍然保持着分裂状态,而在政治上却已经实现了统一。哈马斯接管加沙地带——至少从目前来看——结束了这种政治上的统一状态。

    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.

    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.

    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.
