Abstract [en]

The aim of this theses is to analyse how the UN refugee agency, UNHCR frames the human security of refugees in current European migration policy. It will also examine how they frame the increased security concern in the EU. Do they ignore it or take it into consideration? More specifically my thesis will examine: 1. How does the UNHCR represent human security of refugees and asylum seekers as opposed to national security issues raised by states? 2. In what ways are EU’s refugee and asylum policy represented as a problem? 3. What is represented as the solution to the problem? The method used is a single case study with a qualitative approach and makes use of framing theory and social constructivism. After thoroughly analysing data collected from UNHCR webpage, the results indicate that UNHCR frames the national security versus human security as problems due to securitization. The causes of the problem are represented as inefficient border management and xenophobia. The solution to the problem is represented to be a development of common asylum policy towards a more efficient and equal asylum procedure, but also a more efficient border security and cooperation between European member states.
