Last night in Sweden: En studie om sanning, desinformation och bilden av Sverige
Sammanfattning: Today, we have access to more information sources than ever before. These sources give different versions of reality and of what is true or false. In February 2017, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, made a statement about Sweden and the Swedish reception of refugees, which led to global attention about the situation in Sweden. This bachelor thesis examines which images that are being communicated about Sweden, with the aim to gain further knowledge about the parts played by truth and disinformation in this communication. By us- ing discourse analysis as a method, the communication about Sweden from the Swedish Institute and six different American news media with different political stances has been examined, leading to the identification of three different dis- courses about Sweden. These discourses represent Sweden in different and some- times opposed ways. Some media have been found to use disinformation in order to contribute to the discourse that represents Sweden negatively.
