"The Narco-Terrorist Taliban"

https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/narco-terrorism-taliban-trafficking-opioids-and-meth-by-brah
ma-chellaney-2021-11

Die USA hätten in den vergangenen zwanzig Jahren in Afghanistan stärker gegen die Drogengeschäfte der Taliban vorgehen sollen, resümiert Brahma Chellaney. "Afghanistan accounts for 85% of the global acreage under opium cultivation, making the Taliban the world's largest drug cartel. (…) With the Taliban channeling profits from drug sales directly into its terror machine, the connection between Islamist violence and drug trafficking could not be starker. (…) Had the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan been followed by a US campaign to arrest and prosecute Taliban leaders for their narcotics-trafficking activities in American courts, the group's appeal among fundamentalist Muslims might have been severely diminished."

"A Strategic Compass for Europe"

https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/eu-strategic-compass-by-josep-borrell-2021-11

In einem Beitrag für Project Syndicate erklärt der EU-Außenbeauftragte Josep Borrell: "Our overall threat analysis shows clearly that Europe is in danger. The EU risks what I have called a 'strategic shrinkage.' (…) In navigating this increasingly competitive strategic environment, the EU must become a provider of security for its citizens, protecting our values and interests. But to do that, it will need to act faster and more decisively when managing crises. That means anticipating fast-changing threats and safeguarding its citizens against them; investing in the necessary capabilities and technologies; and cooperating with partners to achieve common goals."

"The Case Against Economic Sanctions"

https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/the-case-against-economic-sanctions-by-robert-skidelsky-2021
-10

Robert Skidelsky bezweifelt, dass der zunehmende Einsatz von Wirtschaftssanktionen als außenpolitisches Mittel effektiv sei. "The question of economic sanctions' effectiveness is probably the hardest to answer because there is no agreed measure of success. Many assume that they are a relatively costless way of bringing about morally beneficial regime change, or changes in a regime's behavior. But the overwhelming evidence suggests that economic sanctions have such effects only in conjunction with military intervention - meaning that they are usually an accompaniment to war rather than an alternative to it. (…) Montesquieu, Adam Smith, Richard Cobden, and many others argued that the exchange of goods, people, and ideas has pacifying effects. Sanctions work directly against this."

lomo-ben-ami-2021-10

Ein Regimewechsel in China sei nicht ausgeschlossen, jedoch unwahrscheinlich, analysiert Shlomo Ben-Ami. "And even if, say, an internal coup occurred in China, there is little reason to think that it would bring anything close to Western-style democracy. (…) The Biden administration should continue building on recent progress in creating collective security arrangements, such as the AUKUS pact with the United Kingdom and Australia and the so-called Quad with Australia, India, and Japan. What it should not do is perpetuate a Cold War-style zero-sum game aimed at forcing regime change in China."

"The Least Bad Option for Afghanistan"

https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/least-bad-option-in-afghanistan-by-richard-ponzio-2021-10

Den Vereinten Nationen komme eine entscheidende Rolle bei der zukünftigen Zusammenarbeit mit den Taliban zu, argumentiert Richard Ponzio. "Today, given the West's almost non-existent political leverage with the group, the UN must resume its central role in promoting reconciliation, providing humanitarian aid, and encouraging development. (…) With some encouragement from the UN, perhaps the Taliban can be persuaded to work with a new, educated generation of Afghans to embark on a development path that leads away from brutal violence, exploitative corruption, and widespread deprivation. In the near term, such an approach represents the least bad option for the international community and, above all, for the Afghan people."

Eine potentielle Zusammenarbeit Afghanistans mit China und Pakistan stelle für Indien ein Sicherheitsrisiko dar, konstatiert Shahi Tharoor. "Pakistan is a long-term adversary that has actively funded and fomented armed militancy against India, hosting (among others) the organizers of the murderous 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. China, meanwhile, is a systemic rival to India and poses economic, military, and strategic threats. Any Afghanistan-Pakistan-China axis involving policy coordination is a major risk for India."

Die Staats- und Regierungschefs von Costa Rica, Neuseeland, Schweden, Senegal, Spanien und Südafrika fordern eine Modernisierung von multilateralen Institutionen. "(…) [T]he world's international organizations were built primarily to resolve inter-state challenges, not problems that transcend borders, such as financial crises, pandemics, terrorism, crime networks, threats to our oceans, or climate change. We therefore must modernize our multilateral institutions, making them fit for purpose and better equipped to deal with the global and cross-generational challenges we face. (…) Together, we can and must reinvigorate rules-based multilateralism, with a stronger and more inclusive UN at its core."

Der Islamismus bedrohe die Sicherheit offener, moderner und kulturell toleranter Gesellschaften, konstatiert der ehemalige britische Premierminister Tony Blair. "In my view, Islamism, both the ideology and the violence, is a first-order security threat. If left unchecked, it will come to us, even if centered far away from us, as 9/11 demonstrated. (…) Like revolutionary communism, Islamism operates in many different arenas and dimensions. Its defeat also ultimately will come through confronting both the violence and the ideology with a combination of hard and soft power."

"NATO's Responsibility to Save Afghans"

Die NATO-Mitgliedsstaaten müssten zusammenarbeiten, um das Leben möglichst vieler Afghaninnen und Afghanen zu retten, fordert Edi Rama. "Until a few days ago, NATO members were the main source of support for the people of Afghanistan. We cannot recede like shadows, alongside the ideals, principles, and promise of freedom and democracy that we made over two decades. The world's most powerful military alliance, built to uphold those ideals with the threat of force and the force of example, cannot become a spineless entity in the eyes of the Afghan people and the millions of people elsewhere who crave to live in a free, just, and democratic society. (…) The founding principle of NATO is that an attack on one is an attack on all. So, too, should a humanitarian challenge as big as the NATO is leaving behind in Afghanistan be embraced by all."

Um dem wachsenden Einfluss Chinas und Russlands zu begegnen, müssten westliche Staaten eine Strategie für den Aufbau eines integrativeren internationalen Systems entwickeln, fordern Heather Ashby und Anne-Marie Slaughter. "This means, first and foremost, getting fully behind expansion of the UN Security Council, and ensuring that a far wider range of global actors is engaged in shaping the international order. Other forms of international cooperation - such as 'impact hubs,' which are oriented around multi-stakeholder networks, rather than nation-states - are also worth exploring."

Indem er der Ukraine das Recht auf Unabhängigkeit abspreche, bereite Russlands Präsident Wladimir Putin den Nährboden für einen Krieg, argumentiert Anders Åslund. "Russian President Vladimir Putin is obsessed with Ukraine - or, rather, with pretending that Ukraine doesn't exist. In his annual call-in show on June 30, he claimed that 'Ukrainians and Russians are a single people.' He then published an article aimed at justifying that 'conviction,' by tracing the two countries' shared history. It is a masterclass in disinformation - and one step short of a declaration of war."

Die ehemalige Außen- und Verteidigungsministerin von Ecuador, María Fernanda Espinosa, und der ehemalige Präsident von Slowenien, Danilo Türk, argumentieren: Die UN sei noch nie so wichtig für die Menschheit gewesen wie heute. "But it needs renewed imagination, vigorous adaptation to changing global circumstances, and emboldened advocates from within and outside governments. As the world prepares to mark UN Charter Day on June 26, we call upon international leaders gathering at this September's annual high-level General Assembly meetings to heed the recommendation of 50 former government ministers and senior UN officials and support 'a dedicated intergovernmental process' to 'strengthen and reform the … institutional machinery of the UN system.' By mobilizing diverse actors worldwide - including academics, practitioners, activists, and policymakers - the international community can ensure that 'the future we want' becomes a reality."

Deutschlands ehemaliger Außenminister und Vizekanzler Joschka Fischer erörtert, warum die Idee eines Kalten Kriegs zwischen China und dem Westen irreführend und nicht wünschenswert sei: "(…) [O]n closer examination, the Cold War comparison is misleading. The systemic rivalry between the US and the Soviet Union was preceded by one of the most brutal and catastrophic 'hot' wars in history, and reflected the frontlines of that conflict. (…) The situation between the West and China today is totally different. Though the Communist Party of China calls the country 'socialist' to justify its political monopoly, no one takes that label seriously. (…) Unlike in the past, a cold war would hasten, not prevent, mutually assured destruction."

"Killer Politics"

Michael Burleigh beleuchtet die Geschichte politischer Morde: "Assassination is as old as recorded history. The 'classic' example is the mob-like stabbing of Julius Caesar on March 15, 44 BCE. (…) Most assassins are paid employees of states. And, historically, the most professionally competent government assassins were the pre-World War II Soviet NKVD killers who targeted dissident Marxists and Ukrainian nationalists in a variety of global contexts, from civil war-torn Spain to Mexico. (…) Modern history is full of efforts to contain the practice of assassination - starting with rulers who regarded it as dishonorable even as they discovered its uses. (…) With the rise of strongman rulers like Putin, the assassins seem to have been let loose once again, inspiring others."

Der jüngste G7-Gipfel in Cornwall sei eine Verschwendung von Ressourcen gewesen, das Format gehöre abgeschafft, argumentiert Jeffrey D. Sachs. "Political leaders need to stop devoting their energy to an exercise that is unrepresentative of today's global economy and results in a near-complete disconnect between stated aims and the means adopted to achieve them. (…) The G7 is particularly irrelevant because its leaders don't deliver on their promises. They like making symbolic statements, not solving problems. Worse, they give the appearance of solving global problems, while really leaving them to fester."

2021 müsse einen globalen Wendepunkt markieren, appellieren eine Reihe von Persönlichkeiten aus Politik, Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft, darunter der ehemalige UN-Generalsekretär, Ban Ki-moon, und der frühere britische Premierminister, Gordon Brown. "Whereas international cooperation often failed in 2020, we now have an opportunity - and the responsibility - to usher in a new era in which a healthier, greener, safer, and fairer world is possible. The great truth that has emerged from the coronavirus pandemic is that no one, anywhere, is safe from COVID-19 until everyone, everywhere, is safe. (…) The G7 and G20 can help to bridge the financing gaps faced by vulnerable countries and act to restore a viable path toward the SDGs."

Ana Palacio und Simone Tagliapietra plädieren für die Initiierung einer transatlantischen Klimaallianz. "In fact, the EU and the US should (…) create a 'climate club,' as Nobel laureate economist William Nordhaus proposed in 2015. As one of us (Simone) and Guntram B. Wolff recently argued, economies would have to take four steps to join: strengthen and align domestic targets; agree to a system for quantifying and comparing domestic climate policies; establish a standard for measuring the carbon content of complex goods; and ensure transparent taxation and regulation. (…) This would help to advance another shared EU-US interest: establishing rules of the game in emerging sectors and markets, such as green hydrogen and sustainable finance."

Die jüngste Eskalation des israelisch-palästinensischen Konflikts habe die reale Machtverteilung im Nahen Osten offengelegt, analysiert der ehemalige Außenminister Joschka Fischer. "Notwithstanding all of the changes of the past few decades, the fact remains that stability depends on the US. Though America no longer wishes to engage with the region, it has no choice but to keep doing so, lest a regional brushfire escalate into a global conflagration with nuclear risks. (…) As in ex-Yugoslavia in the 1990s, America is the only global or regional power capable of guaranteeing regional peace - or at least of suppressing all-out war. Russia would like to assume this role, but it cannot. (…) As for China, it has no interest in assuming America's Middle East role, nor could it do so if it wanted to. The Chinese regime simply does not have the mindset to become a guarantor of a global order far beyond its borders."

Eine Reihe afrikanischer und europäischer Politikerinnen und Politiker, darunter die Präsidenten von Frankreich, Ruanda, Senegal und Südafrika, fordern einen "New Deal for Africa": "International solidarity began yielding results soon after the pandemic began. Debt-service payments for the poorest countries were suspended under the G20, and exceptional financial assistance from the IMF, the World Bank, and other donors, including Europe, was made available. But the institutions that have underpinned international solidarity for decades are now reaching their limits. (…) That is why a new framework, an ambitious and bold New Deal, is needed. And the first test of this initiative must be access to COVID-19 vaccines. (…) The second component of a New Deal for Africa is large-scale investment in health, education, and the fight against climate change."

Die Wahrnehmung Chinas als strategischer Rivale habe sich in den USA erstaunlich schnell und einheitlich durchgesetzt, kommentiert Zhang Jun. Der Großteil der politischen Führung bevorzuge Konfrontation statt Kooperation mit Peking. "Ironically, the problem is partly rooted in extreme ideological polarization, which has impeded US political leaders' ability to govern effectively and minimize the social costs of structural transformation in the age of globalization and digitalization. (…) The anti-China narrative has (…) restored some common ground to American politics. Unfortunately, Americans are agreeing on an idea that will do them far more harm than good. (…) In fact, according to former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who spoke at a special session of the China Development Forum in Beijing in March, a positive, cooperative bilateral relationship is essential to global peace and prosperity."

Im Gespräch mit Anu Bradford betont die Vizepräsidentin der Europäischen Kommission, Margrethe Vestager: "Remember, social media can be a great enabler of democracy; but it can also be the opposite. I work with a program to help more women engage in politics, and a recurring issue that we face is online hate speech and harassment that is clearly aimed at discouraging women's participation. At the same time, these platforms create opportunities for people to voice their ideas and interact with others. Ultimately, I think that full democracy will have a physical side and a virtual side. We need to ensure that the virtual side is enhancing our democracy, not undermining it."

Bei der Bewältigung globaler Herausforderungen sei multilaterale Zusammenarbeit von großer Bedeutung, betont der ehemalige NATO-Generalsekretär und ehemalige Hohe Vertreter für die Gemeinsame Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik der EU, Javier Solana. "Many who previously regarded international relations as a struggle to preserve or alter the balance of power now assume that states will have to adjust their priorities in view of twenty-first-century challenges. (…) Although we live in an era of rising geopolitical tension, we must never lose sight of the major challenges that threaten us all and force us to find common ground. Anticipating crises, isolating areas of friction, competing peacefully, and cooperating in areas of mutual interest is the recipe for a safer, more prosperous, and sustainable twenty-first century."

Dem kürzlich von der EU veröffentlichten Strategiepapier zur indopazifischen Region fehle es an Substanz, argumentiert Ana Palacio. "It is a timely step, which reflects an awareness of the Indo-Pacific region's growing strategic importance. But, as is so often the case with EU frameworks, it offers a lot of vague plans, broad principles, and bureaucratic jargon - and not much strategic clarity. (…) With this approach, the EU hopes to contribute to 'the stability, security, prosperity, and sustainable development of the region.' In other words, in true Brussels style, the EU's new Indo-Pacific strategy emphasizes soft power, while lumping together bilateral and multilateral efforts in unclear and potentially overlapping ways."

"By tackling the climate and biodiversity crises, everyone will be better off, thanks to better jobs, cleaner air and water, fewer pandemics, and improved health and well-being. But, as with any broad transition, the coming changes will upset some and benefit others, creating tensions within and between countries. As we accelerate the transition from a hydrocarbon-based economy to a sustainable one based on renewable energy, we cannot be blind to these geopolitical effects."

Kemal Derviş und Sebastián Strauss skizzieren die Bemühungen der USA um mehr multilaterale Kooperation und Chinas Reaktion darauf: "The first major initiative was US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen's call for a new $650 billion issuance of special drawing rights (SDRs, the International Monetary Fund's reserve asset) - something that President Donald Trump's administration had blocked. (...) It would not only involve a record new $650 billion SDR issuance to countries in proportion to their IMF quotas. It also calls on countries not needing these SDRs to reallocate them voluntarily to countries in need. (...) China supports the proposed new SDR allocation, but it remains to be seen whether it will agree with the US and other advanced economies on the implementation details and reallocate some of its own SDRs in a coordinated multilateral manner."

"(…) [W]ith Joe Biden now president, talks that began this month in Vienna provide the main global powers with a diplomatic opportunity to salvage the pact. We must hope that they succeed, because Trump's 'maximum pressure' proved to be a resounding failure. (…) The JCPOA was not intended to be a panacea, but defusing the nuclear proliferation threat is undoubtedly the best route to tackling troublesome Iranian behavior elsewhere in the region. (…) The downward spiral of tensions we have witnessed in recent years is reckless. Stopping it will necessarily involve intensive diplomacy - even more of which should follow."

The Taliban, in fact, will take Biden's statement as confirmation that they need only to bide their time for a few more months before laying siege to Kabul.

"Leaders on both sides of the Atlantic must (…) build a technological alliance of democracies that will win the digital race and set the global rules in our mold.
