索马里的新海盗

摩加迪休—索马里拥有非洲大陆最长的海岸线。我国富饶的海域是全世界物产最丰富的海域之一,这里有成群结队的黄鳍金枪鱼、蓝枪鱼、鲯鳅和鳁鱼。但是30多年来,这片富饶的海洋荒野沦为冲突之源,来自外国的非法、未报告和不受监管(IUU)渔船肆无忌惮地掠夺着我们的大海——偷取我们的鱼,运到遥远的港口卖出。

仅仅几年前,IUU渔船的入侵催生了一大波索马里海盗,导致全球海洋运输业付出数十亿美元的收入损失。非法外国渔船逃离我国海域后,索马里海盗很快又将注意力对准了更加有利可图的船只,比如货轮和油轮。此外,如今海盗已经基本肃清,越来越多的证据表明外国渔船又回来掠夺我国海域了。

安全渔业(Secure Fisheries)组织的新报告——《保卫索马里渔场》(Securing Somali Fisheries)所披露的新卫星数据表明,如今外国IUU渔船的捕捞量是索马里渔船的四倍。它们把目标对准了我国海域内价值最高的鱼种,导致索马里渔船只能竞争低价值鱼种。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    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.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
