Mobilization of followers and visions for the future in IS. : A discourse analytical study of Dabiq Magazine, the propaganda magazine of Islamic State. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study has been to find out what methods the Islamic State are using in

order to mobilize their followers and strengthen the organization. The purpose of this

essay has also been to find out what the dreams and visions the Islamic state has for the

future. From a discourse analytical approach, the Islamic State propaganda newspaper

Dabiq Magazine has been analyzed based on how well the material is consistent with

Lincoln’s theories on cultural identity and Jameson’s theory on historical identities and

myths. The results showed the Islamic state's conscious strategy of portraying itself as

the religion’s only true interpreter and that religion holds a central domain of the

collective identity as the Islamic State intends to create for the organization. The

analysis also shows the Islamic state's dreams and visions for the future that are

primarily manifested by the organization's power ambitions but also by apocalyptic

references to prophecies from holy scriptures in the Quran.
