Abstract
The purpose of this thesis is to, with help from critical discourse analysis examine the violent riots in Rosengård, a suburban area in Malmö. The study is based on the reporting from the events in three local newspapers, Sydsvenskan, Metro and City. The thesis tries to explain which factors defines and influence what views and perspectives that can take place. The major findings in the thesis are how the violence claims disproportionate space in the news covering and how protesters gets depoliticised and defined as “criminals” and “thugs”. Along with a dominant police discourse that rules out the political aims of the protesters and any other political understanding or solution to the situation.
