Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this essay is to analyse how Die Welt and The Moscow Times framed the2013 Moscow mayoral election and one of its candidates, Alexei Navalny, by usingframing theory and quantitative content analysis.The results showed that the game frame is the dominating overall main-frame in bothnewspapers and that Navalny is most commonly either described in neutral or flatteringterms, but that he predominantly is a passive object in the texts and not an activesubject. The newspapers used several of the sub-frames, mainly the horse race-frameand the conflict frame (The Moscow Times) and the political strategy frame (Die Welt).Keywords: framing, media logic, quantitative content analysis, Die Welt, The MoscowTimes, Alexei Navalny, Russia, Strömbäck, Entman.
