NPR’s Daniel Estrin pulls back the curtain on his reporting from the Middle East

On the day that President Trump announced his new Middle East “Peace to Prosperity” plan, NPR’s Daniel Estrin was in Seattle sharing stories about his work as a reporter based in Jerusalem.

Estrin talked about how he became a reporter and how he chooses his stories. He shared insights into the lives of some of the people he has met, such as Omar Omar.

Among other subjects, Estrin shares his analysis of the President’s newly presented peace plan, and the recent incident between NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Daniel Estrin is NPR’s Jerusalem correspondent. The Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies presented his talk on January 28 at University of Washington’s Kane Hall. KUOW’s Sonya Harris recorded the event.
