Self-censorship is often understood in relation to censorship (Simons and Strovsky, 2006; Kenny and Gross, 2008; Tapsell, 2012). While the word ‘self’ emphasises individual agency, ‘censorship’ indicates the presence of an external force that imposes itself on an individual or a collective. The mainstream literature on media and journalism has thus far fallen short of theorising the relationship between self-censorship and censorship, and of grasping the mechanisms that inform and regulate the two phenomena. Studies on self-censorship are much less numerous than those on censorship. The main reason for this is that self-censorship is difficult to conceptualise, operationalise and capture empirically.
