Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explain in which way Swedish media describes EU, from a domestic policy or an international policy point of view and how this has changed during the time of membership.

Theories which are being used helps us understand the form of governance that exists between Sweden and EU and the influence mass media has on people.

In this paper the articles of two newspapers are being analyzed, Dagens Nyheter and Expressen, in terms of placement and contents. The variables I use are domestic, international, politics, other and domestic policy, international policy and mixed.

The result I got has been somewhat surprising. There has been no significant increase in portraying EU from a domestic policy point of view.
