Introducing The Globe’s new World Insider Add to ...

This week, The Globe launches World Insider, a daily examination of the most important international developments and global issues, written by a group of experienced and interesting experts, veteran diplomats and on-the-ground insiders from around the world. Exclusively for Globe Unlimited subscribers, World Insider will each morning offer a detailed analysis of a current world news development and its potential effects on Canadians, their investments, and their future – an informed and essential roadmap that cuts through the noise of international headlines.

World Insider is produced by The Globe’s award-winning international-affairs columnist Doug Saunders and by foreign editor Craig Offman, who oversees the most extensive international coverage in the Canadian media, with bureaus in Beijing, New Delhi, Jerusalem, Johannesburg, Rome, London, New York, Washington and Rio de Janeiro.

Here’s what you can expect:

The world this week: Every Monday morning, international-affairs columnist Doug Saunders or one of his colleagues will provide a wide-angle look at a development likely to shape the week’s news, and a guide to the the most important readings on the subject.

Middle East Insider: Every Friday, Middle East writer Patrick Martin will provide an insider’s account of the most important developments in the Middle East and North Africa, drawing on his unparalleled range of contacts and experiences.

Americas Insider: A team of writers led by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist David Shribman, will offer an insider’s analysis of U.S. politics, with a focus on its effects on the economy and the wider world. They will be joined by top observers of Central and South American affairs, centred around the Globe’s new Rio de Janeiro-based Americas bureau.

Diplomatic Insider: A team of experienced former diplomats will provide a behind-the-scenes autopsy of the diplomatic implications of international events, focusing on Canada’s role in the world and with an eye on looming, unnoticed trends.

BRICS insider: The Globe has won acclaim and awards as the Canadian leader in coverage of events in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Our network of expert observers in these countries will provide an inside look at the developments most likely to change the world from within these crucial countries.

We know that Globe readers are devoted followers of international affairs and global trends, and expect the highest standards in world analysis and opinion. We encourage your feedback.
