俄罗斯走向孤立之路

两年前,俄罗斯人带着满意的心情看世界。我们在外交舞台上的表现超出我们的经济和军事力量。然而时光不再。

去年还是取得了一些成绩的,其中最重要的就是限制经济主权的外债已差不多偿清了。另一方面,尽管俄罗斯的客观力量没有变化,我们在国际事务上的影响力却下降了。从中东到反恐战争,再到限制大规模杀伤性武器扩散的努力,俄罗斯都本应是一个重要的参与者。然而这些问题中找不到俄罗斯人清晰的“脚印”。不错,甚至连欧洲和美国之间不断加深的裂痕也没有阻止俄罗斯丧失地位。

这样的转折令人困惑。弗拉基米尔·普京总统在国际交流中仍然相当有影响力,但是俄罗斯在2004年遭受的数次明显的失败损坏了她的形象,削弱了她在世界上的地位。

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.

    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.
