Fair Observer Monthly: August 2022





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, a former Texan Republican Congressional candidate examines why women vote for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a former Irish prime minister examines the Northern Ireland Protocol and a young Pakistani author analyzes the new world order that is emerging as the US-led postwar system is crumbling. Dr. Mehdi Alavi, an Iranian American, examines Belgium’s refusal to apologize and pay reparations for its atrocities in Congo. The German far-right, Israeli soft power and US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Taiwan visit are also covered.
