美国首都华盛顿智库哈德逊研究所的Dr. John Lee,出版了几本关于中国问题的专著。

Lee published a book, Will China fail? - the limits and contradictions of market socialism, in 2007. An updated second edition was released in 2009. The subject of this book is the complexities and risks associated with China's approach to economic development, which Lee asserts to be flawed, unsustainable, dangerously unstable, and unlikely if not incapable of providing a foundation for the continuation of China's 'peaceful rise' or 'peaceful development'. In 2014, he co-authored a report with Paul Dibb titled Why China Will Not Become The Dominant Power in Asia which received considerable attention. The report rejects the idea that America should step back from the region and treat China as a strategic equal in Asia; that China's military, economic and demographic shortcomings are considerable and in many respect getting worse; that a China-dominated Asian region is unlikely without American strategic withdrawal; and defence planning in Australia should not be only about countering Chinese power in the Asia-Pacific. Lee has also emphasised the importance and desirability of Japanese power for a stable balance in the Asia-Pacific in the current century

Lee has written extensively on the subject of China's political-economy, foreign policies of the United States, China, Japan, India, Australia and in Southeast Asia, and strategic and economic futures in East Asia. Lee has published more than 300 articles in newspapers, magazines, and journals, including the Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, The Australian, the New York Times, Financial Times, Forbes, The Times of London, The Australian Financial Review, Time, Der Spiegel, South China Morning Post, Global Times, Washington Quarterly, and Newsweek.
 

哈利法克斯国际安全论坛(2015)与会者名单

在第七次哈利法克斯国际安全论坛270多名与会者中,再次出现了西藏流亡政府总理洛桑森格的名字,这是他第二次与会。当然,与会者中不会有朝鲜,不会有俄国,也不会有中国官员或学者。中国再一次与国际级的混混们一起,登不上国际大家庭的大雅之堂。

林耶凡发起网上请愿向北京施压

11月22日,世界小姐加拿大赛区冠军林耶凡在其脸书上发起网络签名活动,呼吁中国在最后关头允许她入境参加即将举行的第65届世界小姐总决赛。林耶凡在请愿信中称作为加拿大冠军,至今没有收到中国的签证邀请函,只是因为她对自己的出生国中国的人权问题持批评立场。

11月21日,第65届世界小姐总决赛参赛选手陆续抵达中国三亚,并将出席23日的欢迎仪式。在接下来的一个月里,全球各分赛区的冠军们将进行城市巡游、才艺大赛、服装秀、“顶级模特”比赛和慈善晚宴等活动,总决赛晚会及加冕晚宴将于12月19日举行。

在爆出签证问题后,世界小姐加拿大分部曾向中国担保林耶凡会专心比赛,不会有任何政治行为,并对她最终获得签证抱一线希望。但林耶凡表示如获准前往中国,肯定会表达自己的想法,但 “不会做出无理性、不和平的举动。”

加拿大新政府本月重申了对林耶凡的支持,在表示无法对中国签证问题作出评论的同时,强调促进人权仍是对华关系的当务之急。11月16日,新总理杜鲁多曾与习近平在土耳其的闭门会谈中谈及人权问题,但不清楚是否涉及林耶凡的签证问题。

林耶凡是第二位获得世界小姐加拿大赛区冠军的中国移民,2009年11月,原籍山东的马艳冰代表加拿大参加了在南非举行的世界小姐总决赛,并以第五名的成绩创下了加拿大在总决赛中的最好排名。

杜鲁多会见习近平期待开启新型关系


1116日,加拿大总理杜鲁多在土耳其安塔利亚会见了中国主席习近平,双方同意探索两国间自由贸易的前景,杜鲁多希望提升两国在商业、外交、文化甚至政治方面的对话层级,开启加强合作互利共赢的新时代,他还邀请习近平和李克强访问加拿大。
 
20国峰会期间举行的这次会晤十分正式,杜鲁多和习近平一起站在两国国旗前握手后入座。习近平称“会永远铭记“老杜鲁多在45年前与中国建交的“非凡政治远见“。杜鲁多则赞扬两国40年来的友好关系,希望开启一种新型的双边关系,在经济、政治、安全和文化等方面展开合作和举行定期对话,并在未来几年看到成效。

《多伦多星报》称双方在公开会议后的闭门会谈中谈及了人权问题,杜鲁多的发言人承认双方在人权问题上存在分歧,但各自都以相互尊重的方式表达了立场。《多伦多太阳报》说杜鲁多上任不到两星期就与中国领导人会晤,与哈珀的三年形成鲜明对比,加拿大前驻华大使马大维批评哈珀对华政策缺乏连贯性,导致加中关系一度冷淡。哈珀曾公开批评中国的人权状况,授予西藏流亡领袖达赖喇嘛荣誉公民,并指控中国对加拿大进行商业间谍活动。

参加20国峰会是杜鲁多上任后的首次外访,除习近平外,他在会议期间还会与奥巴马、普京等十多个国家领导人举行会谈。

加拿大表示坚定地和法国兄弟站在一起



周五晚上巴黎遭受恐怖袭击后,准备动身前往土耳其参加20国峰会的加拿大总理杜鲁多立即召开国家安全会议,要求确保加拿大安全。杜鲁多在一份声明中表示在这黑暗的时刻,加拿大会坚定地和法国兄弟站在一起,继续与国际社会密切合作打击恐怖主义。 

杜鲁多表示加拿大已经向法国政府及人民提供了一切可能的支持和援助,但没有具体指明援助的内容。恐怖袭击发生后,加拿大驻法大使馆发出通知,提醒在巴黎的加拿大人保持高度的警惕。

这是杜鲁多就任总理两个星期以来首次遇到的国际危机,11月6日他曾下令撤回在伊拉克和叙利亚执行对伊斯兰国轰炸任务的加拿大CF-18战斗机,恐怖袭击令人关注加拿大是否会重新考虑这一决定,对此杜鲁多表示在事件未完全清晰之前,谈这个问题为时过早。

不过他就强调在保障人权和自由的同时,各国政府有责任保护本国公民的安全,而如何平衡二者,是各国政府必须关注的问题。20国峰会原本要讨论叙利亚难民危机,巴黎恐怖袭击事件将使这一问题更加复杂化,几天前杜鲁多曾表示会在峰会上阐述加拿大年底前接受25千名叙利亚难民的计划,加拿大政府正面对令人头疼的筛选和安置问题,最新的恐怖袭击增加了解决问题的难度。

另外周五当晚,在加拿大第一大城市多伦多市中心地区,警察加派了警力,在法语省份魁北克的省议会大厦和世界第二大法语城市蒙特利尔市政府大楼都降了半旗,在法国驻蒙特利尔总领馆外,数百人冒雨秉烛,向远在巴黎的遇难者致哀。
