Abstract [en]

Foreign fighters in Islamic States have been in public discussion around the world for several years. There are a lot of male and female fighters, who have joined the ISIS in Syria and some of them have already returned to their home countries worldwide, including Sweden. As Sweden provides a critical case, a country ranking first in gender equality index with a high degree of integration of gender equality goals in its institutions, it is a critical case to research the use of societal gender stereotypes in media framing. This study, therefore, explores how Swedish media frame ISIS female and male foreign fighters in terms of the extent of gendered framing. It is a qualitative single N-study analyzing 80 online articles from four different Swedish news outlets, Aftonbladet, Expressen, Svenska Dagbladet and Dagens Nyheter which include both evening and morning newspapers. Framing theory and gender role theories are used to describe the extent to which male and female ISIS fighters are framed by the Swedish media in stereotypical gendered terms, as "warriors" and "beautiful souls" respectively. While our findings demonstrate that Swedish media mostly framed ISIS fighters based on traditional gender roles, especially when it comes to male fighters as "warriors," we also found that the framing of female fighters has been more nuanced. Although there were often framed in gendered terms, there have also been cases where ISIS female fighters were framed as killers and active fighters comparable to their male counterparts.
