Honorary doctorate recipient

Lyse Doucet, CM, OBE

Doctor of Laws (LLD), 2020
For her reporting and commitment to journalistic integrity

New Brunswick-born Lyse Doucet has spent her 37-year career telling stories that often go underreported in Western media. She served the BBC for 15 years as a foreign correspondent, first from West Africa, then from the Middle East, where she developed an international reputation as an expert on the region. In 1999 she transitioned into the role of senior presenter, but as the BBC’s chief international correspondent she also continues to report from the field and make documentaries. She is often deployed to interview key figures and anchor major news events around the globe, such as the Arab Spring.
