Abstract [en]

This thesis uses critical discourse analysis to examine how the English-speaking press in Hong Kong constructs the conflict between the political movement Occupy Central and the Chinese central government. The empirical material consists of ten articles from the region’s two largest English-speaking newspapers, Hong Kong’s oldest newspaper, the South China Morning Post, and China’s only national English-speaking newspaper, the China Daily. Building on the works of Teun van Dijk, Norman Fairclough, Ruth Wodak and John E. Richardson it examines what political ideologies that are favoured by the press and what attitude the press shows for democratic development. The study reveals which different political ideologies and attitudes were communicated in the two newspapers. In this conflict the China Daily has been favouring the dominating political ideology and the South China Morning Post has been favouring the pan-democratic political ideologies. The results show that the South China Morning Post also was favouring the pan-democratic political ideologies in articles that were critical of the Occupy Central movement. All of the examined material from the China Daily has been unilaterally critical of the Occupy Central movement and has favoured the hegemonic communist ideology.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats använder kritisk diskursanalys för att undersöka hur den engelskspråkiga pressen i Hongkong konstruerar konflikten mellan den politiska rörelsen Occupy Central och den kinesiska staten. Det empiriska materialet består av tio artiklar från regionens två största engelskspråkiga tidningar, Hongkongs äldsta dagstidning, the South China Morning Post, och Kinas enda nationella engelskspråkiga tidning, the China Daily. Med utgångspunkt i forskning av Teun van Dijk, Norman Fairclough, Ruth Wodak och John E. Richardson undersöker arbetet vilka politiska ideologier som gynnas av pressen och vilken attityd pressen visar för demokratisk utveckling. Studien visar vilka olika politiska ideologier och attityder som har kommunicerats i de två dagstidningarna. I denna konflikt har the China Daily visats gynna den dominerande politiska ideologin och the South China Morning Post har gynnat utmanande pan-demokratiska politiska ideologier. Resultaten visar att the South China Morning Post har gynnat pan-demokratiska politiska ideologier även i artiklar som varit kritiska mot Occupy Central-rörelsen. Det undersökta materialet från the China Daily har varit ensidigt kritisk mot Occupy Central-rörelsen och har gynnat den hegemoniska kommunistiska ideologin.
