土耳其、亚美尼亚,和沉重的记忆

终于,所有的战争都结束了。但是,当下在中国发生的政府煽动的反日骚乱提醒我们,留在记忆中的暴行场面永远不会褪去。1915年,由当时统治的土耳其奥斯曼帝国青年土耳其党人下令、库尔德人协助的亚美尼亚大屠杀今年正逢90周年纪念,这是另外一个永远不会弥合的伤痕,如果土耳其加入欧盟之路要顺利坦荡的话,那么就必须治愈这个伤痕。

人们相信,是发生在亚美尼亚的种族屠杀引发了纳粹灭绝犹太人的计划。但是,比起大屠杀来说,大部分人对这段黑暗的插曲知之甚少。

事实上,我们中大部分人都难以想象亚美尼亚人民和他们世代相传的家园所遭受的苦难之深、浩劫之重。亚美尼亚后裔如今在全世界繁衍生息,但是他们已经去世的上一辈保留着口述历史的传统,让他们永记历史。

    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.
