Orla Guerin (Dublin) became the BBC’s Egypt Correspondent in 2013. Since then she has reported Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Tunisia, and Libya.
She has reported on the first democratic transition of power in Cairo, suicide bombings, sectarian violence, the Taliban shooting of Malala Yousufzai and the battle for female education. In total, Orla has reported from over 60 countries, and her work has been recognised with awards and nominations in the UK, USA, and her native Ireland. In this talk, Orla discusses her work and life.
Organised by the Institute of Irish Studies, in partnership with the Liverpool Irish Festival, this event also contributes to the festival’s new strand of work In:Visible Women, an important body of work considering women, particularly those with Irish connections, today.
