A conversation with
Founder & Director, Research Journalism Initiative
Human Rights Activist, Nablus, Palestine
Executive Producer & Co-host, Flashpoints, KPFA

The Research Journalism Initiative is a cooperative education partnership between Najah University in the besieged West Bank city of Nablus and a growing number of High Schools in the United States.

Nora Barrows-Friedman is the Executive Producer and co-host of Flashpoints, a daily investigative newsmagazine on Pacifica Radio. Since 2004, she has been reporting regularly from the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip for Flashpoints and as a correspondent for Inter Press Service, a news agency based in Europe. Nora is on the board of directors of the Research Journalism Initiative. Her website is, and she can be heard daily on
