全球化安理会

巴西利亚—1945年联合国宪章代表着在追求基于多边基础的和平的道路上的历史性突破。在夺走5000多万人生命的世界大战结束时,美国和苏联成为世界两大超级大国。联合国宪章最初由美国、苏联和英国在二战期间谈判确定,成立了包括五个常任理事国的安理会,其他两个是法国和中华民国。

成立之初,联合国总共包括51个成员国;如今有193个。但是,尽管安理会在1965年做了扩充,将非常任理事国的数量从六个增加到十个,但常任理事国数量自1945年以来从未改变。

世界则发生了天翻地覆的变化。除了国际冲突和武器扩散——特别是大规模杀伤性武器的扩散——还出现了其他新挑战,比如恐怖主义以及非国家行东方参与国内冲突。与此同时,全球经济和政治实力分布也发生了彻底的改变,为多极国际秩序设立了舞台。

    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.
