Abstract [sv]


The aim of this study was to see if the socialdemocratic led government in Sweden was supported in its decision to limit the flows of asylum seekers coming to Sweden in the end of 2015.


By using an argument analysis method, this paper has looked closer at the arguments of four different socialdemocratic organisations – SSU, S-kvinnor, ABF and Tro & solidaritet in 23 different articles in the period 2015-09-01-2016-04-01. In the analysis, pro. et. Contra was used to structure the arguments into negative and positive arguments about the government’s decision.


The findings showed that all four organisations were negative about the government changing the immigration policy, and especially SSU and S-kvinnor. The critique was harder and more determined in the articles written by these two, while it was at least a bit more understanding about the government’s decision in the articles from ABF and Tro & solidaritet.
