Abstract [en]

The aim of this Bachelor thesis is to analyze how CNN and Al Jazeera present the causes of the slave trade in Libya. Our specific research question is “How do CNN and Al-Jazeera present the causes of the slave trade in Libya”. To answer our question, Robert, M. Entman’s approach on framing biases is applied. We chose to include three concepts that are analyzed: framing, priming and agenda setting. The thesis is a comparative case study since we investigated the differences between CNN and Al Jazeera’s presentations of the causes. The slavery in Libya became world news in November of 2017, after CNN's report that revealed the slave auctions. The main problem defined by both news networks is the fact that slavery and slave auctions still exist in the modern day. The framings of the causes concerning the slave trade differ between CNN and Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera presented the slavery as a result of the actions of the Western countries, European countries in particular, while CNN addressed many different factors as causes for the slave trade, primarily the political instability in Libya.
