Lyse Doucet

Lyse Doucet joins us for a 1 to 1 interview, in which she will reflect on world events - from her unique perspective as one of the most experienced correspondents of her generation. Lyse is regularly deployed to anchor special news coverage from the field and report across the BBC’s domestic and global channels. Lyse first spent 15 years as a BBC foreign correspondent with postings in Jerusalem, Amman, Tehran, Islamabad, Kabul and Abidjan. In the past year much of her time has been spent in Ukraine reporting on Russia’s invasion and in Afghanistan covering developments since the return of the Taliban. Lyse received an OBE in the Queen’s honours list in 2014 for her services to broadcasting and was invested in the Order of Canada in 2019 for her “empathetic coverage of world events.”
