Integration's discourses in newspapers : an analysis of four Swedish newspapers (English)
This essay is about integration's discourses in newspapers. It compares four different newspapers with each other and it compares them also in a time perspective. The four different newspapers that the essay compares are Aftonbladet, Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Nyheter and Expressen. These are Swedish newspapers and they are distributed all over the country. The time perspective is a two months period, one month in the year 1994 and one month in the year 2002. In my essay I have used a method called critical discourse analysis to interpret the newspapers.
When I have analyst the articles of the newspapers, this is what I found. The integration discourses in the different newspapers defines integration as something an immigrant has to go through in order to become a member of the Swedish society. In the newspapers there is also different dimensions of this integration's discourse. Work and language is pointed out as important in the process of integration. Sometimes, especially in the material from 2002, the newspapers write that language is more important then work, or that work is more important than language. These sides are really different politics sides. The left politics favours work and the right politics favours language. The different newspaper choose sometimes to let some politics argue for their side, and sometimes the newspapers only let one political side argue. From that I can say that newspapers Aftonbladet and Svenska Dagbladet are more to the left, while the others Dagens Nyheter and Expressen are more to the right. Both in the year 1994 and in the year 2002 the articles it's against that times integration's politic and offer solutions so that the Swedish society, can have a better integration's politic.
