¿Proceso de paz o paz verdadera?

RAMALLAH – Las conversaciones directas entre los líderes palestinos e israelíes son la manera más evidente de lograr la paz en el conflicto de Oriente Medio. Pero la historia ha demostrado una y otra vez que un proceso de paz de perfil alto, por sí solo, no es la receta del éxito.

Todo está previsto para que la Liga Árabe se reúna más avanzado el mes con el fin de asesorar al liderazgo palestino sobre si comprometerse o no en conversaciones directas con Israel. Las autoridades palestinas dicen que no tiene ningún sentido entablar conversaciones directas que no son más que la oportunidad de sacarse una foto con el objetivo de crear la impresión de un proceso de paz al mismo tiempo que se evita todo compromiso sustancial.

Para los palestinos, el primer paso en verdaderas conversaciones de paz debe incluir algún acuerdo sobre las cuestiones básicas de las fronteras y la seguridad. Los palestinos han presentado a sus pares israelíes (a través de los estadounidenses) un ofrecimiento por escrito que incluye la cesión de tierras ocupadas por Israel en 1967 y hoy habitadas por colonos israelíes. Esas tierras serían intercambiadas por otras tierras iguales en tamaño e importancia. Israel todavía no ha ofrecido un solo documento por escrito que establezca su postura en cuanto al territorio que se convertirá en un estado palestino al costado de Israel.

    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.
