Fair Observer is a media platform that focuses on analysis and not news – why is something happening and not what is happening is the question that we seek to answer. To answer this why, we provide a plurality of perspectives from around the world, what we call a 360° view. For more information on Fair Observer, please visit

Media Coverage

Peter Gelling is the deputy editor for the Middle East and Africa for GlobalPost. Gelling previously reported from Indonesia from 2004 to 2010 for GlobalPost, the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times. He examined the country’s difficult transition to democracy after 30 years of authoritarian rule, its emerging economy, environmental challenges, and its role as a voice of moderation in the Muslim world. His coverage of Indonesia spanned everything from the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that killed 170,000 people, to the country’s fight against al-Qaeda-linked terrorist networks. Gelling graduated from Indiana University with a degree in history.
