“The criminals have taken possession of the neighborhood” : A study of how the news media highlights crime in four of Sweden’s particularly vulnerable areas (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie handlar om hur svenska media belyser kriminaliteten i fyra av Sveriges mest omtalade utsatta områden. Med hjälp av tre svenska nyhetstidningar, Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet och Expressen är syftet med denna studie att undersöka hur dessa belyser problematiken med kriminalitet i fyra geografiskt sett utplacerade områden i Sverige; Vivalla, Tensta, Gottsunda och Rosengård. Studien syftar även till att undersöka om det går att se att nyhetsrapporteringen kring dessa områden kan påverka samhällets syn på dem. En kvalitativ metodansats, i form av innehållsanalys valdes för att få en djupare inblick i, för studien relevanta nyhetsartiklar. Resultatet från utvalda nyhetsartiklar har analyserats med tidigare forskning och de teorier som studien innefattar, vilket är Beckers stämplingsteori, Wacquants teori om territoriell stigmatisering och McCombs och Shaws dagordningsteori. Resultatet visar på att det framförallt rapporteras om vapenbrott/skjutningar, våldsbrott och explosioner/sprängningar i de fyra utsatta områdena. Nyhetsartiklarna handlar om allt från när brottet begås till när dom faller. Vi har kunnat se att det rapporteras om en social utsatthet och hur gängkriminaliteten har en negativ påverkan i dessa fyra områden. Det framkommer även att det att det främst är polisen som nämns i nyhetsrapporteringen som utomstående aktör, men även socialtjänst, räddningstjänst och politiker nämns i en mindre omfattning.

Abstract [en]

This study is about how the Swedish media highlights crime in four of Sweden's most mentioned vulnerable areas. With the help of three Swedish newspapers, Dagens Nyheter, Aftonbladet and Expressen, the purpose of this study is to investigate how these illustrate the problem of crime in the problem of crime in four geographically located areas in Sweden; Vivalla, Tensta, Gottsunda and Rosengård. The study also aims to investigate whether it is possible to see that news reporting around these areas can affect society's view of them. A qualitative method, in the form of content analysis, was chosen to get a deeper insight into news articles relevant to the study. The results from selected news articles have been analyzed with previous research and the theories that the study includes, Becker's labelling theory, Wacquant's theory of territorial stigma and McCombs and Shaw's agenda setting theory. The results show that there are mainly reports of gun violence/shootings, crime of violence and explosions in the four vulnerable areas. The news articles are about everything from when the crime is committed to the conviction. We have been able to see that there are reports of social vulnerability and how gang crime has a negative impact in these four areas. It also appears that it’s mainly the police that are mentioned in the news reporting as external actors, but also social services, rescue services and politicians are mentioned to a lesser extent.
