A change of reasoning in a changing world : An argumentation analysis of Stefan Löfvén’s statements on migration and refugee policy the years 2012 - 2015 (English)
Abstract [en]

The study chronologically maps the argumentations concerning migration and refugee policy made by Stefan Löfvén, chairman of the Swedish Social Democratic Party as of January 27, 2012, and Prime Minister of Sweden as of October 3, 2014. It examines how and why the reasoning coming from Löfvén in the subject has changed during his time as a political leader and that is done with the help of two guiding independent variables. To do so the study answers the following primary research question:

- How has the mediated image and reasoning coming from Stefan Löfvén on migration – and refugee policy changed and why?

The two independent variables consist of two big happenings for Stefan Löfvén as a political leader. The first variable “from party leader in opposition to prime minister” tells us how his reasoning is affected by becoming prime minster. The second variable “the increasing amount of asylum applications” tells us how his reasoning is affected by an increasing amount of filed asylum applications. These two independent variables create the following two précised research questions:

- How has the mediated reasoning, its theses and arguments, coming from Stefan Löfvén been affected by going from being “only” a party leader in opposition to becoming the country’s prime minister?

- How has the mediated reasoning, its theses and arguments, coming from Stefan Löfvén been affected by the increasing amount of asylum applications?

The result of the study shows that both independent variables and the happenings characterizing them has affected the generally mediated image and reasoning coming from Stefan Löfvén in the subject of migration and refugee policy. The results also shows that the “subject” of migration – and refugee policy is a bit more complex and two sub-categories besides the more general subject were identified and the mediated reasoning in these were in some cases affected in a different way.
