Hedersrelaterat våld i media : En kvalitativ studie om svenska tidningars gestaltning av religion och kultur i artiklar om hedersrelaterat våld under åren 2002 - 2012


The purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the portrayal of religion and culture in articles from Aftonbladet, Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Nyheter and Dagen which are newspapers in which possess different ideological backgrounds. The honor killings of Pela Atroshi, Fadime Sahindal and Abbas Rezai will provide the basis of the study. The empirical material for this study is twenty four articles from the newspapers previously mentioned. A comparative content analysis was executed in order to distinguish the differences and similarities between the newspapers. Jesper Strömbeck’s version of the framing theory was applied to the study in order to analyse the portrayal of religion and culture. The final conclusions were that the majority of the articles portrayed culture as an opposition to freedom and modern society. The same was found of the portrayal of religion. Furthermore, the study showed that the newspaper which is based on the social democratic values tended to refer honor killings to structural problems rather than individual cases
