Abstract [en]

In recent years, Sweden together with big parts of Europe have become more political right-oriented than before. Compared to previous years, the support for the Swedish Democrats increased significantly in the parliamentary election in 2018, and there were major regional differences. In this essay we examine how the construction of "immigration" and "immigrants" appears in the local newspapers in the areas where the Swedish Democrats received the highest and lowest electoral support. Using critical discourse analysis, it also examines if there are any differences between the areas. Previous research shows that media plays a significant role when it comes to affect people's perception and attitude towards immigration and immigrants. This study, which is based on articles from the Swedish newspapers Västerbottens-Kuriren and Ystads Allehanda in a period of May-September 2018, shows that "immigration" is more often constructed negatively, while the construction of "immigrants" are generally more positive. It also appears that there are regional differences in the construction of immigration and immigrants when comparing the two newspapers. In Västerbottens-Kuriren the construction of the concepts is more often positive while in Ystads Allehanda the negative aspects of immigration and immigrants are more often in focus.
