南亚稳定的关键

纽约——世上少有几个地方像南亚般面临着令人生畏的挑战。一场由毒品引发的叛乱威胁着新生的民主阿富汗。在部族地区恢复活力的塔利班打破了巴基斯坦的稳定。不久前在孟买发生的大屠杀致使有核印度和巴基斯坦再次陷入到僵持的局面。

上述所有危机都需要采取紧急对策。但正如亚洲协会特别工作队所指出的那样,应对危机时世界不应对于印美关系的美好希望视而不见。

今天,印美两国都站在历史机遇的边缘:那就是建立全新的国际关系,能在助推全球安全、经济繁荣、核不扩散以及应对气候变化领域取得进展。但这些潜在的好处只有在美国总统巴拉克·奥巴马给予印度问题以应有的重视,并允许印美两国私有部门参与进来,解决单靠政府解决不了的问题从而加大战略赌注时才有可能实现。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. 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. 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.
