Abstract [en]

How does the mainstream/centre right Conservative Party frame immigration in contrast to how the radical right UKIP frames immigration? Despite a lot of previous research on the two parties and their views on immigration, there is no clear answer to this question and to how similar the parties are after the Brexit referendum. As national populism is a fast growing movement within the Western World and due to the fact that there is a lack of research on these parties and their views on immigration after the Brexit referendum, this paper aims to do a comparative analysis of ideas on the Conservative Party´s and UKIP´s views on immigration. In  order to investigate this, I make use of previous research to construct an anlysis apparatus that enables me to analyze arguments and proposals on immigration presented by the two parties. This paper aims to compare the two parties and their views on immigration by investigating the argumentations and language that they use in the official party material. In order to give a more holistic answer to the research qquestion, newspaper articles including arguments and quotes from party representatives are also analysed. The paper contributes with new answers on how similar the parties are, indicating that they have a very similar approach on immigration and on how to control it.
