Natalie Amiri became known for her courageous investigative research, astute commentaries in the “Tagesthemen”, a German news programme, as well as her dedicated interviews and coverages.
Award-winning works include her ARD documentary “Death off Lampedusa – Europe’s Fall from Grace”, as well as the Grimme Award-nominated documentary: “Disappeared in Germany”, a depressingly impressive film that searches for underage refugees missing in Germany. In 2019, Amiri was nominated for the German Television Award as best foreign correspondent.
Since 30 March 2014, she has hosted the “ARD-Weltspiegel” from Munich, as well as the TV magazine “Euroblick”. Natalie Amiri has also headed the ARD office in Tehran since 2015. In May 2020, she was warned by the German Foreign Office not to enter Iran anymore and therefore had to give up the management of the Tehran TV studio.
With her book “Between the Worlds. Of power and helplessness in Iran” (2021), she wants to give the people in Iran a voice.
