土耳其与欧洲:两列迎头相撞的火车?

欧洲插手黎巴嫩的事务,是做了一个影响深远、充满风险、但同时又正确的决定。究其原因,欧洲未来的安全将取决于地中海东部和中东的局势。欧洲,不论愿意与否,已经在这个地区承担起新的战略性作用。一旦失败,代价将非常高昂。

鉴于欧洲承担的重大风险,充分意识到其后果,欧洲必须对地中海中部和中东制定一套“宏大的战略”,从而冷静、明确地界定其利益所在。要对这套宏大战略进行任何重要的改动,土耳其应该发挥核心作用——政治上、军事上、经济上、以及文化上。

保障欧洲今天的利益意味着要和土耳其建立牢固的联系——应该说是一种牢不可破的纽带,作为地区安全的基石。然而让人莫名其妙的是欧洲的做法刚好与此背道而驰:对土耳其引起的战略挑战视而不见。

    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.

    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.
