飘忽不定的中东和平进程

发自特拉维夫——转眼间,马德里和会已经过去了整整20年,而美国前总统克林顿召开戴维营以巴领导人谈判的失败壮举也是10年前的事了,这让人不得不得出结论:所谓以巴和平进程,不过是现代外交史上一场伟大的骗局罢了。

而和平进程之所以失败,原因就是在政治可行性和达成协议的必要条件之间存在着相当明显的分歧,而双边各方却无力将其弥合。以至于在可能性必要性之间左右为难的以色列人和巴勒斯坦人,都已经学会了如何在没有和平方案的情境下生活。

当国际舆论都倾注在加沙的苦难之上时,巴勒斯坦“问题”对许多以色列人来说似乎是件非常遥远的事情。矗立在西岸的隔离墙以及阿里埃勒·沙龙从加沙撤军的举措已经有效防止了犹太人和阿拉伯人之间的日常摩擦。而以色列人也已经失去了解决巴勒斯坦问题的紧迫感——他们正把心思放在不断增长的经济上,最近还得到了奥巴马不会背弃以色列的承诺,更何况在西岸地区的反巴勒斯坦恐怖活动也取得了成果,此外还成功阻止了哈马斯发动另一场战争的企图。

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
