Fair Observer Monthly: August 2021





Fair Observer Monthly is a chance for you to sit down, look back 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 focus on the fallout from the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and the US withdrawal from the country. We also have articles on elections in austerity in the Arab world, the minimum wage in America and the transgender community in India.
