邻国的恐怖主义

伦敦-在一个知名圣训中,先知穆罕默德说,“如果你们受到了动荡的威胁,就去也门避难吧。”先知在这里指的是繁荣而文明的也门。然而,现在,也门的混乱和激进已经开始侵染沙特阿拉伯,并影响到这个世界上最大的石油生产国的安全了。

        从20世纪80年代以来,当沙特阿拉伯按照美国政策,寻求将国内的反对者——其中最出名的就是出生在沙特阿拉伯的也门人奥萨玛·本·拉登,输入阿富汗与苏联异教徒进行战斗的时候,先知穆罕默德关于也门的圣训,就引起了人们新的共鸣。虽然沙特将大部分反对者都转移到了阿富汗,但是,本·拉登最受其信任的同伙(以及他的妻子)大部分仍然留在了也门。

         在塔利班被逐出阿富汗之后,本·拉登和他的追随者们渐渐将也门和巴基斯坦作为了他们的避风港。事实上,因为也门与阿富汗和巴基斯坦一样,国家机构软弱而且容易受到操纵,所以,许多伊斯兰圣战分子聚集到了也门,使也门成为伊斯兰圣战分子日益膨胀的根据地。

    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.
