One aim of this thesis, has been to explore how discursive frames are constructed, frames to relate to, compare with, and therefore be part in shaping political subjects.

The other aim has been connected with a more empirical platform, where I wanted to discover how these frames are established and structured discursively within a political organization, among its members; in this case with a foucs on the Swedish social democracy and its former leader Olof Palme. The thesis starts with a theoretical presentation and discussion, where focus is on the concepts of ideology, discourse theory in the form of Laclau and Mouffe, and narrative theory. The concepts will be presented and discussed, and also related to the other concepts to see their theoretical potential, both ontologically and epistemologically. Finally the theoretical rudiment is linked and analyzed with the empirical material. The thesis shows clear connections among the theoretical concepts and also that they can complement each other. The final chapter shows the need for an ?ideological mirror?, for a coherent narrative to be structured, and also to relate the ideological discussion to a node point.

Keywords: Ideology, Laclau and Mouffe, narrative theory, social democracy, Olof Palme. (Less)
