保护津巴布韦

约翰内斯堡--尽管据报道称中国运送军火到津巴布韦的安岳江号已经受阻返回了,但是我们不知道穆加贝总统的军队和准军事组织还会不会从其他地方搞到武器。总统大选的结果在四周后依然没有公布。鉴于对反对派争取民主变革运动以及那些显然帮助争取民主变革运动赢得大选的支持者的暴力镇压持续升级,现在迫切需要的是国际上对津巴布韦实施武器禁运。

此外,我们呼吁非盟在联合国的支持下委派一个调查小组到津巴布韦,看看还需要采取那些措施以履行为国际社会所接受的“保护的责任”。

“保护的责任”的概念是在2005年世界首脑峰会上被一致通过的。然而,因为它经常被认为暗示可以出于人道主义干涉的目的而使用武力而倍受争议。我们认为,就像世界首脑峰会上所认同的那样,动用武力只是在需要防止或阻止大量人员伤亡时才使用的最后的解决办法。我们首先要做的是收集可靠的信息以便了解国际社会需要采取那些措施以防止灾难的发生。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
