Our daily selection of the global stories that really matter. Discover the news beyond the headlines with Curio. Every morning, host Manish Verma selects analytical and thought-provoking articles from the world’s leading publications, leaving you better informed and ready for your day.

These are not the first time that mass protests have rocked the country's theocracy but this time looks different from its predecessors. We question with The Economist whether this could be the beginning of the end for the current regime. Then, the human rights violations in Qatar and Ukraine have made headlines, but do countries actually reflect on their actions after being called out by activists? We investigate if this strategy actually works with Foreign Policy.
