Abstract (Swedish)
Uppsatsens syfte var att med en socialkonstruktivistisk ansats belysa framställningen av brottsoffer i nutida svensk press. Det empiriska materialet bestod av utvalda artiklar från svensk press under februari månad år 2012.

Förekomsten av beskrivningar av brottsoffer såsom mer eller mindre ”idealiska” respektive ”motspänstiga” samt en tendens att föra brottsoffer till kategorin ”en av oss” har kunnat beläggas i empirin. Uppsatsen illustrerar också att det kan finnas ekonomiska, samhällsbevarande, opinionsbildande eller partipolitiska intressen bakom att framställningar av brottsoffer görs på ett... (More)

Uppsatsen avslutas med reflektioner kring kvalitativ och kvantitativ metod samt förslag på områden för fortsatt eller fördjupad forskning. (Less)
