The research question is “What frameworks influence the discourse in the debate of a Swedish meat tax?” and my hypothesis is that there are different conflicting frames surrounding the issue of a meat tax. The four worldviews of environmental policital economy by Jennifer Clapp and Peter Dauvergne are used as indicators in the analysis.
The findings imply that there are conflicting frameworks to the issue of a meat tax and in the analytical chapter of the thesis the frames are categorized in a frame table. (Less)
