土耳其扎在欧盟背上的刺

马德里——在欧盟全力抵御威胁其核心机构的民族主义风暴的同时,其某些重要的战略合作伙伴却为当前政治气氛注入了更多不确定性。一个明显的例子是土耳其,该国自1952年以来一直是北约成员国,1999年来一直是加入欧盟的正式候选人。

表面上看,土耳其像是作为欧洲和中东桥梁的理想选择。但现在却令人惊讶地远离了欧洲,该国总统雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安甚至指责德国和荷兰政府像纳粹一样行事。

自从去年7月挫败一次政变企图以来,埃尔多安利用国家紧急状态发动攻势并巩固其自身势力。受欢迎程度直线上升导致其通过行政命令进行治理的新战略得到巩固。到目前为止,已有超过100,000公务员被解雇或者停职,而且不少埃尔多安的政治对手都被监禁。多家民间社会组织和新闻媒体均被关闭,而且土耳其现在夺得了监禁记者人数创记录的并不光荣的桂冠。

    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. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    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.
