Project Syndicate

Project Syndicate is an international association of 264 newspapers in 114 countries.
Project Syndicate's global reach has attracted a distinguished international group of contributors, including presidents, Nobel laureates, and others from a variety of backgrounds and representing a wide spectrum of democratic opinion. Their commentaries have been read and discussed in many countries and provoked discussions spanning the range of modern media. By bringing those ideas and issues discussions to the printed mass media, Project Syndicate establishes an institutional framework within which the editors of major newspapers, together with their readers, may cooperate in dispersing today's "cloud of unknowing.

I am delighted to discover that they provide very good commentries, including commentry by Mikhail Gorbachev. Some of the commentries are really empowering, enlightening and adroitly written.

Worth reading (commentries available in multiple languages):
* Turning Point at Chernobyl by Mikhail Gorbachev
* The Conundrum of Scientific Fraud by Steve Fuller

The commentries are also categorised into sections such as The World in Words, Science and Society, The Asian Century, etc
