Term: Spring 2016

Supervisor: Mathias A. Färdigh, JMG, Gothenburg University

Purpose: To examine differences between Swedish and German nationwide press in the coverage of political leaders during the refugee crisis in 2015.

Method: Qualitative text analysis

Procedure: In-depth analysis of ten newspaper articles, five from the German paper Süddeutsche Zeitung and five from the Swedish paper Dagens Nyheter.

Results: The results broadly correspond with earlier comparative findings about media culture and systems. Dagens Nyheter was both critically investigative and analytical, which puts them
in-between a liberal Anglo-Saxon and a North European democratic-corporative tradition.
Süddeutsche Zeitung appeared not to have the same aim as the Swedish paper regarding impartiality and a critical point of view, putting them closer to a pluralistic and partisan tradition.
Key words:
