奥朗德在马里

巴黎—在数十万人在巴黎街头反对同性恋结婚和养育孩子的权利的同时,法军正在开赴马里,阻止伊斯兰武装和叛军组成的联军控制其首都巴马科,让萨赫勒草原成为恐怖分子的避难所。

这些都是对法国总统奥朗德的试金石。在国内,奥朗德饱受经济问题困扰,其支持度已降至去年当选以来最低。在这样的情况下,他能从新赢得作为法军最高指挥官的信誉(姑且不论支持)吗?

曾几何时,“我与故我在”称得上是法国的座右铭,特别是在非洲。但是,尽管法兰西的民族认同与法国的国际地位——即它在世界人民心目中的形象——息息相关,干预的热情却在减退。干预的好处越来越受到质疑,而成本和风险越来越表露无遗。

    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.
