Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to analyze how the discourse of immigrants and immigration has changed since 1965 and expose what mechanism control the discourse. The time periods that we choose to analyze were: 1965-1975, 1985-1995 and 2010-2016. These three eras were chosen based on the historical premise of Swedish immigration which concerns labor, refugee and family immigration. To shed light on this issue we used a mixed method of content analysis, more particularly, discourse analysis and argumentationsanalysis for the processing of our empirical data. Our empirical collection consisted of articles from the Swedish daily newspaper Dagens nyheter and the tabloid Aftonbladet. For our analysis we selected four different debate articles for each time period, newspaper or tabloid concerning immigrants and immigration. Altogether 24 articles were analyzed.

To understand the discourse of immigrants and immigration we used the classic theorists Foucault and Marx in the formation of our theoretical perspective. Based on our empirical data we found that the welfare state were closely connected to the discourse and that the discourse of immigration and immigrants could be understood through a dynamic model. The model shows the balance of power between an establishment and an opposition. The establishment, opposition and welfare are the mechanisms that do not only control the discourse but also causes the discourse to change.
