Fair Observer Monthly: January 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 riots at Capitol Hill and the inauguration of US President Joe Biden. We also have articles on Ethiopia, Brexit and Angela Merkel.

This is a free e-publication that can be read on tablet and desktop in PDF format.
