Fair Observer Monthly: May 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, we focus on Afghanistan where the Hazara Shia community faces genocide in Taliban-occupied Afghanistan. The former Irish prime minister makes a case for the education of priests and the future of the Catholic Church in Ireland. The UK, France, Colombia, India, Finland, China and Tibet are also in focus.
