教育是一个安全问题

伦敦—11月,我13年来第一次在联合国安理会发言。安理会的氛围发生了很大变化,令我大吃一惊。2000年9月的世界似乎与现在非常不同。那时我们试图构建柏林墙倒塌十年后的新安全秩序。当然,那时有那时的挑战。但在我们谈论根除发展中世界的贫苦问题时,氛围很轻松,甚至可以说积极。

如今,氛围很阴暗。2014年的第一天让氛围更加阴暗了。翻查任何一天的新闻摘要,你都能发现恐怖主义和暴力因为错误的宗教观而层出不穷。其中一些是由非国家行为人犯下的,一些是国家行为人犯下的;但所有这些都是在以宗教信仰不同为表现的分歧和冲突的环境中犯下的。

这是二十一世纪的新斗争。我们需要标本兼治,才能战胜在这场斗争中取得胜利。

    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.
