Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to find out how swedish newspapers writes about Lettland during 2005-2009, who gets to speak in media, which key words being used, and if the news articles content changes over the years. As a basis for my discussion I’ve used Stuart Hall's theories for representation and language. In the same litterature, Hall presents theories for stereotypes and power from different researchers which I have studied for this study. I’ve also used Van Ginnekens theory about who may be heard in media. Finally I have used Fairclogh’s theory for discourse analysis and critical discourse analysis as method for this qualitative study.   I studied Swedish newspapers published 2005-2009. Both metropolitan newspapers and local press. To get a broad picture of a possible Swedish media image, I chose in my investigation to include both news stories and what I call "thought journalism” made up of editorials and columns. I categorized all the items on the basis of year of publication, content and ideology.  I came to the conclusion that Swedish newspapers during the years 2005-2009 writes about three different topics. Latvia’s economic situation, political discontent or Swedes initiative to help the poor Latvian people. With the critical discourse analysis I found a reason for Swedens generosity with loans to the Latvian gouvernment, which is Swedens own economical intrests in Latvia.
