Declan Walsh

How do foreign correspondents navigate the complexities of reporting on governments that may not necessarily want them around? The New York Times’ former Pakistan bureau chief Declan Walsh may have the answer, having been expelled from the country in 2013 when Pakistani authorities gave him, without explanation, 72 hours to leave Islamabad.

In “The Nine Lives of Pakistan,” Walsh reflects on his nine years of experience in one of the modern era’s most tumultuous countries positioned in the nexus of global power struggles and conflict. Walsh paints an “electrifying portrait” of Pakistan through stories of the lives of nine individuals in this “intimate and complex” weaving together of a national patchwork.

Declan Walsh is the Cairo bureau chief for the New York Times, currently covering Egypt and the Middle East. He was born and raised in Ireland, where he earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He has worked out of Dublin, London, Nairobi, and Islamabad, Cairo and other African and Middle Eastern cities.

In conversation with Jim Falk.
