Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis is titled Who is an extremist?  - A qualitative content analysis of the agglutination of right- and left-wing groups and is written by Måns Hoffsten within the discipline of political science. This essay aims to illuminate in which way the Swedish government has tackled extreme forms of left-wing and right-wing activism during the period 1980 – 2013. By looking at how governmental policy-suggestions and reports concerning extremism are formulated during this period this essay explores when and how the two groups first started to become a part of the same problem-representation and on what premises this is built. By analyzing this content, using an WPR-approach it becomes clear that there since 2009 has been a big change in how the governments reports portrays political activism and that the two latest reports has by the help of criminalizing narratives served to increase the legitimacy of governmental surveillance.
