A History of the International Movement of Journalists: Conclusion [The history of the international press and journalist associations shows that the central question has invariably been how to define journalism as a profession and to scrutinize its relation to the state.

Abstract

[The history of the international press and journalist associations shows that the central question has invariably been how to define journalism as a profession and to scrutinize its relation to the state. These two issues culminated in a struggle to define press freedom — a meaning not carved in stone but an open concept deliberated among journalists, news media managers and state representatives. Unlike the Cold War ideology that made us believe in the extremes of total control and absolute freedom, these extremes were not deemed mutually exclusive, but a dynamic process of constantly re-setting the ‘balance between speakers and government’.1]
