Introduction In the sociology of journalism, news is seen as the product of an institution (e.g. Cook 1998 ). Journalists, on the other hand, tend to explain news as the product of professional judgement ( Gitlin 1980 : 249). In one version, news is the outcome of structure, in the other, the result of agency. This discrepancy invites interrogations into the nature of autonomy as a professional trait. This article analyses the boundaries, limits and expressions of journalistic autonomy within a contemporary media context, arguing that autonomy exists within a

Degree of autonomy is one of the key dimensions of professionalization in journalism. However, the strive for autonomy looks different in different media systems, where pressure on autonomy can come from both political and commercial powers, outside and within the media. Media development also changes the conditions for professional autonomy for journalists, in both a positive and a negative sense. In the comparative research project “Journalism in change”, the journalistic cultures in Russia, Poland and Sweden are studied. In a survey involving 1500 journalists from the three countries, journalists report on their perceived autonomy in their daily work and in relation to different actors inside and outside the media. The survey covers how the work has been changed by media developments, and how these changes have affected journalists′perceived autonomy. The results show similarities in the strive for autonomy, but also clear differences in how autonomy is perceived by journalists in the three countries.

This article explores the past and present of the concepts of “sovereignty” and “autonomy” in Jewish nationalism.
It revisits the play of—and interplay between—the two terms in the current moment of globalizations, when old
truths about state sovereignty are being questioned. In particular, it highlights a number of new trends in the
historiography of Jewish nationalism that lend prominence to autonomist or diasporist currents; at the same
time, it suggests the potential utility of such currents in helping to
