The paper investigates the determinants of journalist killing s through state authorities in democratic countries. We expect that journ alists are more likely to be targeted by lower-level state agents in poli tically remote areas\, as subnational authorities are unable to constrain press freedom more widely. Local state authorities will be motivated to silence journalists where their political survival depends on their publi c image\, and where removal from office would result in significant loss of power. Using new global data on the killings of journalists\, we show that journalists’ lives are most in danger where local politicians are de mocratically elected\, and where public sector corruption is rampant. Thi s study contributes to the growing literature on the determinants of repr ession in democratic regimes.\nAnita Gohdes is Professor of International and Cyber Security at the Hertie School.
