Obama leaves office with dignity and disappointment. He could have done much more.

Fair Observer is a US-based nonprofit media organization that aims to inform and educate global citizens of today and tomorrow.
Introduction

1: Who are we?

Fair Observer is a US-based nonprofit media organization that aims to inform and educate global citizens of today and tomorrow. We publish a crowdsourced multimedia journal that provides a 360° view to help you make sense of the world. We also conduct educational and training programs for students, young professionals and business executives on subjects like journalism, geopolitics, the global economy, diversity and more.

We provide context, analysis and multiple perspectives on world news, politics, economics, business and culture. Our multimedia journal is recognized by the US Library of Congress with International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) 2372-9112.

We have a crowdsourced journalism model that combines a wide funnel with a strong filter. This means that while anyone can write for us, every article we publish has to meet our editorial guidelines. Already, we have more than 1,700 contributors from over 70 countries, including former prime ministers and Nobel laureates, leading academics and eminent professionals, journalists and students.

Think of us as a global community like Medium, Al Jazeera English or The Guardian’s Comment is Free on world affairs. You could also compare us to The Huffington Post, except that we work closely with our contributors, provide feedback and enable them to achieve their potential.

Fair Observer is a partner of the World Bank and the United Nations Foundation.

2: What do we do?

Fair Observer publishes content on a daily basis. Our focus is on issues that really matter to the world, be it environmental challenges or scientific innovations, economic trends or political developments, humanitarian crises or social movements.

We publish a unique “360°” analysis that delves deep into an issue. It places the topic in context and then elicits many views on it. Our premise is that everyone has a bias and all of us have blindsides, but when we come together, we have a better approximation of the truth.

Our mission is to inform and to educate. Therefore, we produce in-depth reportspublications and videos on various issues. Our first book on the Arab Uprisings has been widely appreciated. Our reports and publications are meant for the public and are of particular use to policy analysts, business professionals and students.

We conduct educational and training programs for students, young professionals and business executives around the world. We conducted our 2016 Voices of the World Program across six countries in partnership with the United Nations Foundation.
