Fair Observer Monthly: May 2023





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.

As in April, we have chosen 15 articles for you. As you can see, we have increased the number of articles in our monthly magazine. We are publishing more content and, we believe, more interesting content as well. In this edition, young Anton Schauble writes about the need for flexibility in the US political system. Amending the constitution has become so hard that it has failed to keep up with the times. Youssef Igrouane examines the troubled relations between Spain and Algeria. The veteran Ellis Cashmore questions whether the rainbow of inclusivity has become a new tyranny. Ranjani Iyer Mohanty reflects on long diseases in the aftermath of long Covid and former US ambassador Gary Grappo looks at Israel after 75 years of existence. The usual suspects—former Irish prime minister John Bruton, German economist Alex Gloy and editor-in-chief Atul Singh—muse about history, economics and geopolitics. Others share their pearls of wisdom too. So, to make sense of May, read this monthly edition.
