法国会重回北约怀抱吗?

巴黎—很少有国事访问能产生持久的成效。而萨科齐对华盛顿刚刚进行的访问可能是个例外。因为这位法国总统可能正准备为北约在2009年春的60周年诞辰献上一份厚礼:法国将重返北约统一军事架构。在1966年戴高乐执政时期法国退出了北约。

回头看来,戴高乐的决定对法国造成的伤害比对北约造成的更大。由于退出了北约的统一军事指挥体系,法国将自己排除在该联盟内部的政治决策之外,成为与“Harkis”军人类似的身份—这是些在阿尔及利亚战争中与法国军队并肩战斗的当地军人:勇猛的战士,但却几乎没有因为服役而获得任何犒赏。

法国重返北约军事体系的可能性究竟有多大?从法国—北约关系的历史上看,许多类似的举措要么不了了之、要么马失前蹄。最近的一次失败是希拉克在1995年上台以后企图修补法国与北约关系的努力。虽然这次也不能保证成功,但机会却很大,因为法国、美国和世界都发生了变化。

    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.
