By using newspaper articles from Malmö´s leading newspaper Sydsvenskan. I gathered information to analyze with process tracing and discourse analysis. Then by using the theories about securitization I was able analyze the discourse and how it’s connected to security and securitization by using the ideas presented by the Copenhagen School. After the analysis I was able to make a conclusion regarding the matter and connect this conclusion to my theory and to Malmö´s situation. The result of my analysis is that the discourse about Malmö in fact is negative and that it does not always correspond with the actual situation. There is a certain difference between the discourse and the real situation. (Less)
