Bringing together empirical studies of former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe, this Special Issue explores the relationship between censorship and self-censorship. All the cases under consideration share a history of state-led censorship. Importantly, however, the authors argue that journalism in the former Eastern bloc has developed features similar to those observed in many countries which have never experienced state socialism.

This introduction presents the theoretical framework and the historical background that provide the backdrop for this Special Issue’s contributions, all of which take a journalist-focused angle.
