Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the discourses that can be identified in medias representation of social services. To answer the purpose we made a critical discourse analysis using Faircloughs three-dimensional model. The choice to focus our study on a local newspaper was based on earlier research that found it possible that a local paper has a greater impact on readers than a national newspaper. Readers can more easily connect with what's happening in the immediate environment than what is written nationally. We used articles published in 2013 containing “social services”. We found four discourses about collaboration, economy, criticism and work practices and procedures. We found social services mentioned in contexts involving money, resources, complaints, cooperation, collaboration, support, routines and responsibilities. The social services was briefly depicted, descriptions of their work was often omitted. The descriptions we found was often negative and contained assumptions that were not explained.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete var att undersöka vilka diskurser som kan identifieras i medias framställning av socialtjänsten. För att besvara syftet gjorde vi en kritisk diskursanalys med Faircloughs tredimensionella modell. Vi valde att fokusera vår studie på en lokaltidning då tidigare forskning funnit att det kan ses som möjligt att en lokaltidning har ett större inflytande på läsarna än en rikstäckande tidning då läsarna lättare kan knyta an till det som händer i närmiljön än det som skrivs nationellt. Vi använde oss av artiklar publicerade under 2013 och som innehöll ordet socialtjänst. Studien resulterade i fyra diskurser; samverkansdiskursen, ekonomidiskursen, kritikdiskursen och diskursen om arbetssätt och rutiner. Vi fann att socialtjänsten nämns i sammanhang som berör pengar, resurser, klagomål, samarbete, samverkan, stöd, rutiner och ansvar. Sättet socialtjänsten benämndes på var kortfattat, beskrivningar av deras arbete utelämnades ofta. De beskrivningar vi fann var ofta negativa och innehöll antaganden som inte förklarades.
