Fair Observer Quarterly – September 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 race in America to the toxic pollution in the Ganges in India. We also have articles on Brexit, the Rio Olympics, France’s burkini ban and China’s foray into the Persian Gulf.

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