Fair Observer aims to inform and educate global citizens of today and tomorrow. We focus on the deeper issues
behind the news, provide context and bring together perspectives from around
the world. Already, we have more than 1,500 contributors from over 40 countries
and former Irish Prime Minister John Bruton is an adviser. We are unique in
publishing voices from both Tehran and Tel Aviv. Anyone can publish with us
from any part of the world. We are democratizing and globalizing discourse
regarding world affairs. Our big challenge is disseminating knowledge to those
who yearn for it.
The social impact we aim for is
increased citizen engagement with the key issues of our times. By engagement we
mean that citizens spend more time reading, thinking, discussing and doing
something about they care about. It could be writing to a Congressman or buying
art from another country or simply walking more.
We believe that democracy
thrives when citizens are informed and educated. At a time when long form
content and deep analysis is declining, we are focusing on rigorous and
thoughtful articles and multimedia content. We are also conducting workshops,
seminars and Socratic Sessions in high schools and universities, including Palo
Alto High School and MIT.
