争夺巴林之战

麦纳麦——

曾唤起突尼斯与埃及革命的变革热潮正在冲击着巴林。但发生在麦纳麦的起义不同于赶跑了北非长期统治者的这些大规模群众抗议活动。事实上,巴林各教派间的不和加上完全效忠于君主制的安全部队,严重削弱了这个国家出现政权和平更迭的可能性。

突尼斯与埃及都是相对单一的国家,其人口的90%以上都是逊尼派穆斯林占。而巴林的逊尼派穆斯林大约只占人口的三分之一左右,其中包括王室与国家的政治和经济精英。其余的人口都是什叶派穆斯林。这两大派系目前提出的要求即使不矛盾,也完全不同。

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.

    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.
