”There is nothing illegal about a person, being forced to flee” : A critical discourse analysis of how the construction of refugee concepts in politics and media has changed over time (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats, ”Den som flyr har inget val, ingen människa är illegal” -En kritisk diskursanalys över framställningen av flyktingar i politik och media, handlar om hur begreppet flyktingar konstruerats i den flyktingpolitiska diskursen i regering/riksdag och hur Dagens Nyheter konstruerat begreppet flyktingar i den flyktingpolitiska diskursen under två olika perioder. Som teori och metod används en kritisk diskursanalys för att ta reda på om flyktingar framställts som en belastning eller en resurs och i så fall hur och vem som belastas eller de blir en resurs för. Analysen visar att synen på flyktingar i riksdagen och regeringen är att de i störst utsträckning är belastning för Sverige och den svenska befolkningen under båda perioderna. Flyktingar har framställts som ett hot både ekonomiskt och socialt. Under den senare av de två perioderna framställdes de även som ett hot mot landets och folkets säkerhet.  Den framställningen som fanns i riksdagen återspeglades under båda perioderna i Dagens Nyheters artiklar.

Abstract [en]

This paper, " There is nothing illegal about a person, being forced to flee " - A critical discourse analysis of how the construction of refugee concepts in politics and media has changed over time deals with how refugees as concept have been construced in the refugee political discourse in government / parliament and how Dagens Nyheter makes refugees in it Refugee policy discourse for two different periods. As a theory and method, a critical discourse analysis is used to find out whether refugees are presented as a load or resource, and if so, how and who are charged or they become a resource. The analysis shows that the view of refugees in the parliament is that they are to a large extent the burden for Sweden and the Swedish population during both periods. Refugees have been produced as a threat both economically and socially. During the latter of the two periods, they were also produced as a threat to the country and the people's security. The petition that existed in the goverment and the parliament was reflected in Dagens Nyheter's articles in both periods.
