Fair Observer Monthly: March 2024





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 March, we continue to bring you diverse and even contrarian perspectives on developing events. Rashmini Koparkar challenges the Western narrative about India’s Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Andrew Morrow shares why he thinks the majority of the 91 criminal indictments against Donald Trump are unserious. Johann Meyer takes a look at why Germany may be revising its outlook on an erstwhile partner, Qatar.

One of the key issues on everyone’s minds, especially as the weather begins to get hotter in the Northern Hemisphere, is water. Yash Pratap Singh talks about the frightening shortages of water that India, the world’s most populous country, is now facing. Across the world in California, Rakesh Kaul calls for the state government to leverage new technologies to avoid drying up as well.

Yet even as we keep an eye on the present, we turn back to glean what lessons we can from the past. Ali Omar Forozish and Halil Avni Güzelyurt tell us how Turkey’s contemporary policy is rooted in its imperial memories, while Nasim Yousaf brings to mind the underappreciated contributions of Khaksar Women in India’s struggle for independence. Alan Waring gives us his personal take on the long history of London, a city of deep cultural and institutional riches, and Anton Schauble takes us back 2,000 years to think about the meaning of the death of Jesus.
