”It’s about honor killing” : A qualitative study of how honor-related issues are constructed as a social problem in mass media (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how honor-related violence is constructed by media. Over the years, a number of terrible stories of humans have been noticed in media. This forms the basis of why it is important to study media in relations to social work. In today’s society, media has great power, which means that media has a huge impact on how social problems are perceived; honor- related violence is an example of this. The core of this study is to analyze from what perspective honor-related violence is produced in newspapers, and there are three different perspectives to this; the cultural-, gender- and intersectional perspective. The empirical material we have used in this study is news articles of the greatest newspaper companies in Sweden. The results in our study showed that the most occurring perspective reflecting the news articles related to honor issues is the cultural perspective. That is, the universal violence is not as observed in the same way in connection with these issues. Thereby, the honor-related violence differs from the general violence that media report; that is where one can see a pattern that differs and angles men’s universal violence against women. Aspects that are excluded when it comes to honer-related issues could contribute to a disordered image of the issue, but also exclude another important aspect of the social issue. The study has shown that mass medias production of honor is usually directly connected with the immigrant culture that is considered to promote violence; whereas the Swedish culture is considered to be associated with freedom and equality.
