Fair Observer Monthly: April 2018







Fair Observer Monthly is a chance for you to sit down, look back, breathe in and think about the month past. A month lasts 28 to 31 days, a suitably appropriate time to take stock of the world. We publish daily on our website and we select some of our best articles every month in our e-magazine. We will give you context and multiple perspectives on issues that matter. We will inform and educate you. Fair Observer Monthly does what we promise: make sense of the world.

In this edition, we shine the light on issues as diverse as the US strike on Syria to the murder of a Maltese journalist. We also have articles on Black Panther, moral panics over video games and sexism in Bollywood.

This is an e-magazine that can be read on smartphone, tablet and desktop in PDF format.
