Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate whether the Swedish media, between the summer of 2015 and the summer 2018, had changed how they chose to categorise the non-Europeans who tried, or had succeeded, to get to Europe over the Mediterranean. The focus was to analyse if the media chose to categorise these people as refugees or as migrants. In a quantitative content analysis, I examined 193 articles from the newspapers Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter, in which I coded and counted a total of 1,761 terms that categorised the people in the articles as either refugees or as migrants. In addition, a framing analysis was carried out on the material from 2018 to investigate whether this choice of categorisation as refugees or as migrants, had any influence on how the journalist otherwise framed these people in the articles. The study shows that between 2015 and 2018, Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter significantly increased their use of terms that categorise the people how tried, or had succeeded, to reach Europe over the Mediterranean as migrants rather than categorising them as refugees. It was also possible to see indications that when the journalist chose to mainly use terms that categorised these non-European as migrants the framing was generally less positive than in the articles where the journalist chose to mainly use terms that categorised them as refugees.
