Palestine & Israel through the eyes of Swedish newspress : A study of four Swedish newspapers coverage of the Israel-Palestine-conflict (English)
Abstract [en]

This study, Palestine & Israel through the eyes of the Swedish newsmedia, has examined how four Swedish newspapers framed the Israel-Palestine conflict between the years 2008-2018, as well as how the newspaper's coverage changed over time. The study used a quantitative and a qualitative method by analyzing frequently used words in the analyzed articles as well as in-depth readings of a few individual articles chosen via random selection. The study used framing theory as a way of analyzing the texts as well as Johan Galtung's normative theory of war- and peace journalism (Galtung 2003, 177-180). The study found that the Swedish newspapers most often used an international political frame to contextualize the war between Israel and Palestine. Focusing on the actions of international organizations and countries outside of the region historically known as Palestine. This way of framing the war also increased in tandem with big events in the international community such as Palestine's application to become a member of the UN. Furthermore, the results also showed that the Swedish newspapers’ portrayal of peace differed somewhat from Johan Galtung's description of “peace journalism”. The main difference was that peace journalism focused a lot more on the actions of elites rather than the actions of civilians. The elite persons that appeared in this frame were usually political actors such as the president of The United States and the foreign minister of Sweden.
