James Carter
詹姆斯∙卡特

James ("Jimmy") Carter served as the thirty-ninth president of the United States from 1977 to 1981, having completed one term as the governor of Georgia. Carter’s presidency is largely defined by both his foreign policy involvements, including the Panama Canal Treaty and the Camp David Accords, as well as the economic uncertainty and stagflation over which he presided. Carter also was a huge proponent of human rights and pressed for racial desegregation, comprehensive health-care reform, and environmental protection. A Baptist, Carter famously announced that he was a "born again" Christian during his 1976 campaign. Carter co-founded the New Baptist Convention in 2006, having disassociated himself from the Southern Baptist Convention over disagreements about policy and doctrine. Since the end of his term, Carter has founded the Carter Center to continue his work promoting global health, democracy, and human rights around the world, which earned him a Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.
詹姆斯(“吉米”)∙卡特在1977至1981年间担任美国第39任总统,此前他曾任乔治亚州州长。卡特任职期间,一方面外交政策方面卷入了巴拿马运河条约和戴维营和谈,另一方面则要应付经济上的不确定和通货膨胀。卡特还是大力推进人权的人士,在国内促进反种族隔离、医疗保健的全面改革和保护环境。作为浸信会信徒,卡特在1976年选举期间以宣称他是一名“重生”基督徒而知名。2006年,由于在政策与教义方面的不同意见,卡特脱离了“南方浸信会联合会”,并作为创始人之一,建立了“新浸信会联合会”。在卸任总统职位之后,他创建了“卡特中心”,继续致力于推进全球健康、民主和人权的工作,这些工作为他赢得了2002年的诺贝尔和平奖。
