Fair Observer Quarterly – March 2016







Fair Observer Quarterly is a chance for you to sit down, look back, breathe in and think about the month past. About 90 days is a suitably appropriate time to take stock of the world. We publish daily on our website and we select some of our best articles in our quarterly e-journal. We will give you context and multiple perspectives on issues that matter. We will inform and educate you. Fair Observer Quarterly does what we promise: make sense of the world.

In this edition, we shine the light on issues as diverse as the intensifying Saudi Arabia-Iran rivalry to materialism in South Korea. We also have articles on African immigration policies, Pakistani support for terrorism and Nicaragua’s potential destruction because of Chinese expansion.

This is an e-journal that can be read on smartphone, tablet and desktop in PDF format.
