埃塞俄比亚的外交作用

比利时——20年前,埃塞俄比亚还是冷战的角力场。在世界意识形态地图上,这里是属于苏联的领土,到处可以看到饥荒、独裁和内战的烽火。但在1991门格斯图·海尔·马里亚姆的马列主义独裁政权被推翻后,埃塞俄比亚开始发生变化。今天,它跻身世界五大发展最快经济体的行列,同时也成为地区稳定的有力捍卫者。

局势的稳定至关重要,因为非洲之角已经再次成为令人头痛的安全隐患。要想稳定非洲局势,埃塞俄比亚必需发挥重要作用。事实上,它应该成为国际社会所有希望防止整个东非陷入混乱的国家不可或缺的战略伙伴。

除邻国索马里无休无止的混乱局势外,长期在位的总理梅莱斯·泽纳维是摆在埃塞俄比亚面前最令人生畏的区域挑战。国家与厄立特里亚省边境小镇端巴米的武装冲突一直不断。邻国苏丹政府和前造反势力苏丹人民解放运动的和平协议前所未有的稳固,定于20111月在南部举行的分离和独立问题全民公决可能再次引发一场全面的战争,这次全民公决是2005年和平协议的组成部分。

    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.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
