黎巴嫩代言人

过去几周来,来自黎巴嫩真主党和基督教黎巴嫩力量等各党派的黎巴嫩政治家不时召开会议,这就是所谓的“国家对话”。对话的主要目的是要在去年叙利亚撤军之后,就黎巴嫩的未来发展问题达成共识。但这次对话暴露出来的却是黎巴嫩政治继续受到外来力量的强大影响。

巴沙尔·阿萨德总统控制的叙利亚政权继续对黎巴嫩国内事务产生重大的影响,这种影响涉及安全、情报、军队和司法等方方面面¾更不用说与军事力量强大的黎巴嫩真主党组织结成联盟了。尽管叙利亚士兵在1年之前就本该撤离,阿萨德政权却从未从离开黎巴嫩的失败中恢复元气,时刻企图着对这个国家再次强加某种形式的霸权。

联合国一直在进行调查,指控叙利亚参与了2005年2月14日刺杀前总理哈里里的阴谋,这使叙利亚的立场变得异常复杂。尽管叙利亚的黎巴嫩盟友呼吁改善两国关系,但刺杀哈里里却为这一目标能否实现增添了疑虑。目前,黎巴嫩党派已经同意不允许利用黎巴嫩国土为基地来威胁叙利亚政权的安全。

    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.
