    17 juillet 2018, par Robert E. Litan
    While President Trump continues to dismantle existing world order, which was carefully constructed over seven decades following the horrors of World War II, top Democrats have stayed strangely silent on the administration’s trade war.

    17 juillet 2018, par Jeffrey A. Bader, Ryan Hass

  • What’s wrong with political leaders citing research ?

    16 juillet 2018, par Jishnu Das — Global Development

What research politicians choose to highlight therefore influences what is eventually funded. Yet, recent speeches and op-eds suggest that (...)
