- Ett magasin om obehagliga sanningar som kommer fram när man öppnar asken
The main purpose of the study was to examine how dictatorships and partly free countries are presented in Swedish travel magazines during 2010 and the beginning of 2011. Questions that we have sought answers to are: How much information about the political situation do we get from the articles about the concerned countries? Do they mention anything about human rights? Does the social situation get any attention? If the articles doesn´t mention any of the factors above, what do they mention? In what way do you compromise with the journalistic ideals when writing about travels? We have also taken a look at how the inhabitants of the concerned countries are presented and whether or not they get to have their say.
