Abstract [en]

Media representation has a powerful effect on the opinions and behavior of the public and can affect how different groups are perceived and treated. This research aims to describe and compare how European immigrants and other immigrants are represented in The Times, The Telegraph and The Guardian during the Brexit referendum period. The theoretical part is based on constructivism and representation theory to explore how European immigrants and other immigrants are represented in the British media within the areas of culture, religion and the economy. The research is qualitative and uses articles by The Times, The Telegraph and The Guardian to collect data material; all articles are analyzed between the periods of January the 1th 2016 until the 31th of December 2016. The analysis shows that EU immigrants and other immigrants are portrayed differently, where EU immigrants are mainly represented through economic features, they are portrayed as both a threat and a resource to the economy and labour. While other immigrants are merely represented through cultural and religious aspects, they are mainly represented as dangerous and violent.
