多元文化主义的文化矛盾

斯德哥尔摩——国家支持的多元文化主义已经垮台了。 继德国总理默克尔和法国总统萨科奇宣布放弃多元文化主义之后,英国首相大卫·卡梅伦内容相似的声明宣告欧洲社会这一页已经翻过去了。 但实际情况果真如此吗?

卡梅伦对多元文化主义的诘责可谓直言不讳。“坦率地讲”,他说,“我们需要减少近年来的被动忍耐,构建更为积极有力的自由主义。” 他所批评的不是种族和文化的多元性,而是对不同社会团体适用不同道德标准的“国家多元文化主义”。 比方说卡梅伦宣布,今后不支持女性权利、捍卫言论自由或促进种族融合的穆斯林团体将失去一切政府资助。

在欧洲垮台的不仅是官方支持的多元文化主义,欧洲民间普遍认同的多元文化主义命运也并未好到哪去。 全世界最自由国家之一的瑞典近来激进主义思潮也有所抬头,恐怕可以作为一个恰当的实例。

    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.
