Abstract [en]

This study is a bachelor thesis on the representation of Saudi Arabia and Iran in The New York Times and Chicago Tribune. The research looks for frames articles in terms of security, economy and identity in relation to these two countries. The analytical framework is based on social constructivism which is used to understand the frames in relation to Alexander Wendt’s cultures of anarchy which in turn speaks of the relationship between states in combination with Agenda-setting theory and Framing theory. These theories are used to describe the frames in terms of friendliness and hostility, Hobbesian being the enemy, Lockean being the rival, and Kantian being the friend. The study showed that between the years of 2002 and 2015, Iran was mostly framed as a Hobbesian enemy while Saudi Arabia was mostly framed as a Kantian friend.
