Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine the use of fear in oral political communication. For the study, speeches held during the political event Almedalsveckan 2017, by representatives from three Swedish political parties, are analyzed. The authors are using the following questions to carry out the analysis;

¤ Are elements of fear expressed in the speeches and to which extent?

¤ In which ways are fear used in the speeches?

¤ Are there any political questions for which all party representatives express fear?

Former studies have suggested that politicians in some ways are driven by fear and that fear is a fertile ground for building politics upon.

The method used for the analysis is an ideal analysis which includes the use of abstract and concrete dimensions of fear as the analytical instrument. Results of the study shows that the speeches do include expressions of both concrete and abstract fear, to a varying extent. Vio-lence, threats, extremism and social disruption are elements of fear which are expressed by all representatives.
