Under the Surface : An Examination of What the Press Wrote During the Alleged Submarine Violations in the 1980s (English)
The aim of this essay is, by using tree conductive Swedish newspapers, see how thesubmarine violations that Sweden suffered during 1980s, was depicted in the Swedish press in terms of threats. Two major submarine violations will be investigated in this paper, U137-incident in Karlskrona archipelago in 1981 and Hårsfjärden-incident in Stockholm archipelago in 1982. To achieve the purpose, I use a qualitativ method and a threatperspective to answer my questions. These questions are for instance
- From which nation, according to press reports, comes the threat?
- What is, according to the press, threatened?
The results show that the press saw the submarine violations as a major and serious threat that mainly come from Soviet Union. The relationship between Sweden and Soviet became strained because of the submarine violations. The submarine threat for example the population, neutrality and military areas. Antother result that can be seen is that readers of different newspapers have different preceptions of threat because the newspaper in many cases put their own interpretation of the threat. A clear example can be seen in that the reader´s preception will change, depending on how much criticism the press gives to the government an millitary.
