As method the thesis makes use of Carol Bacchis critical policy analysis in combination with discourse analysis and the theoretical framework is built on theories on “governmentality” and “securitization”. Through this the thesis shows how the roma migrants are partly victimized, but mainly perceived as a threat towards society‟s constituting principles and the basis of a societal identity. It also shows how this has effects on how policymakers construct the identity of the roma migrant and that policymakers tend to share a logic which limits what sort of policy can be directed towards the group.
