Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to identify and analyse how Radical Right-wing Populist (RRP) parties are represented in news media. A comparative discourse analysis of representations of the Progress Party and the Sweden Democrats in news articles and editorials is therefore carried out. Only a small amount of previous research on media’s attention to RRP-parties has looked at the representation of them in media, hence there is a gap within this research field. A comparison between these two parties is interesting in the sense that even if they are both RRP-parties there are many differences between them. At the same time they exist within similar media systems. A qualitative discourse analysis is carried out with the help of specific value questions from an analytical framework. The result of the analysis shows that there are many differences in representation of the two parties, but also some similarities. The differences might depend on the parties being different in level of establishment, ideology and history. However, the similarities found are that both parties tend to be represented as an outsider in the political arena. Both parties are often represented as an underdog trying to take place in the political game
