针对伊拉克妇女的战争

    巴格达amp#45;amp#45;伊拉克各个妇女组织和国际观察员指出,一场日益升级的战争正在对伊拉克妇女展开,而在美国占领之下大范围的混乱和无法无天使得形势更加严重。除了美国士兵在监狱内外的暴力之外,伊拉克妇女每天都面临来自武装人员假借宗教和“解放”名义施加的暴力。

    伊拉克第二大城市巴士拉是保守派什叶派团体的据点。根据联合国人道主义事务协调办公室的报告,去年在那里有133名妇女由于违反“伊斯兰教义”和在所谓的“荣誉杀生”中被杀害。杀害手段残忍无比,表明了原先被镇压的部落力量由于占领而东山再起。妇女们被绞死或者砍头,她们的手、胳膊以及腿被剁掉。

    美国军队在伊拉克同时给逊尼派和什叶派领导人予以资助企图稳定伊拉克,妇女们的状况日益恶化。伊斯兰领导人对妇女实行了新的限制,包括禁止工作,禁止在没有男子保护人的陪同下外出以及强制蒙面。

    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.
