Fair Observer Monthly: May 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 Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We also have articles on India and COVID-19, economic recovery in MENA and Central Asia, and the Hazara community in Afghanistan.
