Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to examine the representation of the Swedish-Somali community in Swedish news reports during the Covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of this research is to look into how the two major Swedish newspapers, Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter represented the Swedish-Somali community and its experiences throughout the pandemic. A selection of articles from the two news outlets published during the first and third wave was selected using a qualitative content analysis approach. Discrimination and racism against racialized individuals and groups remain major challenges in today's society, partly shaped by media discourse and the construction of "the others". The results of this research contribute to a broader understanding of the intersection between media, public health, and social identities during a global crisis. By exploring the particular case of the Swedish-Somali community, this study provides insights into the structure of media representation, emphasizing the importance of accurate and impartial reporting in promoting social cohesion and battling xenophobia
