Abstract [en]

This study examines what frames is used in editorials and debate articles in the chosen newspapers; From Sweden, Aftonbladet and Svenska Dagbladet, from Great Britain, The Guardian and Financial Times. Both Sweden and Great Britain are members of the European Union but has not yet implemented Euro. The study examines how newspapers in each country frame Euro. Four different frames were used:

National identity, Democratic Sovereignty, Economic Growth and Social Welfare. These frames are used to see how writers of editorials and debate articles applied them in order to persuade the citizens of Sweden and Great Britain. Bacchis' "What is the Problem Represented to be", was used to get a better understanding of the framing methods, where we analyse the data by stating problem, cause and solution. This study has contributed with a comparative case study to a limited field of research. Studies on this subject have been done before, however, not a comparative study using these cases, Sweden and Great Britain. The question answered is if there are any similarities and differences regarding media framing between Sweden and Great Britain. The result differs from frame to frame.
