Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för lärande, humaniora och samhälle

Sammanfattning: Aim: With particular regard to the traditional media and political participation in Sweden, Iintend to map how and in what way Greta Thunberg protests and the political engagement she expresses. Questions: • How is Greta Thunberg’s protesting framed and how can it be understood based on theprotest paradigm? • How can you understand Greta Thunberg´s political participation on the basis of ideasabout Civic Engagement? Method and material: This report is a qualitative study based on a textual analysis. For collectingthe empirical material, I have chosen to use texts from Swedish news articles. I used 27articles from 2 newspapers which is Aftonbladet and Expressen. Main results: The study shows that media puts greater focus on Greta Thunberg as a personinstead of the factual content and political agenda she stands for. This contributes to GretaThunberg being marginalized and delegitimized, since she is considered a symbol thatchallenges the political power structure. Greta Thunberg feels responsible for the climateissue and it is her duty to be able to contribute to a democratic society by getting involved.Greta Thunberg considers her participation in the media that she feels a moral obligation toengage with the climate.
