将波兰带回欧洲

华莎——法国总统伊曼纽尔·马克龙不久前呼吁改革欧盟代表着整个大陆的希望。尽管我们存在分歧,但我们在基本问题上却并无异议。在欧洲必须采取何种举措才能继续繁荣的问题上马克龙的意见基本正确。我们必须通过进一步实现民主、加强公正和凝聚力来实现欧盟的复兴。我们必须强化欧洲力量,才能面对那些想要削弱它的敌人——具体而言就是内部民粹主义势力和背后为其提供支持的大国。

当民粹主义分子像执政的波兰法律与正义党(PiS)那样获取权利时,他们梦想着在民主反对党派之间播种分裂。但在5月欧洲议会选举进行前,我们通过建立欧洲反对力量联盟来战胜他们这种阴险的策略。我所领导的民主联盟已经在民调中取得领先,并且正在为击败法律与正义党而付出不懈努力——首先是在5月,而后今年秋天举行的波兰大选将是我们的又一个阵地。

这两次选举都至关重要。波兰需要一届尊重法治并在欧盟发挥积极作用的新政府。而欧洲所需要的波兰在捍卫其自身利益的同时,也会为对欧盟未来至关重要的民主价值观而不懈奋斗。

    The Lost Spirit of the G20

    Javier Solana

    As Japan prepares to host its first G20 leaders’ summit later this month, little remains of the open and cooperative spirit that marked the first such gathering in 2008. But although the United States will most likely continue its protectionist drift, other G20 countries should use the occasion to make a clear case for free trade.

    The Experts We Need

    Andrés Velasco

    Policy gurus spend too much time with others like them – top civil servants, high-flying journalists, successful businesspeople – and too little time with ordinary voters. If they could become “humble, competent people on a level with dentists,” as John Maynard Keynes once suggested, voters might identify with them and find them trustworthy.

    Don’t Feed the Donald

    Shlomo Ben-Ami

    For Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, appeasing US President Donald Trump is not so much a choice as a necessity: he must prove to Japan’s people and their neighbors, particularly the Chinese, that he knows how to keep Trump on his side. But Abe's strategy won't work with a US administration as fickle and self-serving as Trump’s.
