为人权而赛

    布拉格--当北京被挑选主办2008年奥运会的时候,中国政府承诺在尊重人权上取得明显的进步。我们理解,国际奥委会也要求实现这些承诺作为一项主办条件。这也就是今年的奥运会有可能为主办国的更大开放和尊重国际人权和自由标准做出贡献的原因。

    奥林匹克宪章指出,奥林匹克运动的目标是“将体育服务于人的和谐发展,维护人类尊严,促进和平社会”。要实现这一目标,就有必要让所有的奥运选手了解中国的真实情况并且凭着他们的良心随时随地自由地指出违反人权的问题。我们呼吁国际奥委会力促此事。

    对于我们来说,根据对奥林匹克宪章的解释,认为人权是一项不得在奥运场合讨论的政治议题是难以理喻的。人权是体现在众多国际人权文书中普世以及不可分离的议题,中国也签署了这些文书。它们超越了国际国内政治、所有的文化、宗教以及文明。

    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.
