“Major news events like the devastating heat wave in Europe, revelations from the Jan. 6 committee, or the assassination of Abe Shinzo first rock a nation and then the globe. But then they lead the thoughtful reader to seek out context — whether that’s secondary questions on climate change policies, vulnerabilities in democracies, or a country’s gun regulations. Here at the Monitor, one of our driving missions is to help readers connect dots around the world. We recently attempted to do so on two news events that began in the United States but ripple out globally: gun violence and abortion rights.” (08/01/22)
