Part of the The Palgrave Macmillan Series in International Political Communication book series (PIPC)


This chapter investigates how Arab journalists define professional journalism in relation to their sources, the representation of diverse point of views, and media activism. It reflects on the complexity of journalists’ own perceptions of their roles and identities, and how these perceptions are shaped and constrained by cultural and political factors.
