Abstract

The analysis applies a deductive approach based on critical security studies and theories of mediatization which will adhere process-tracking as a main strategy. The process-tracking will not show any correlation since the quantitative result had a significant difference in the reporting of articles of Islamist extremism whilst reports from the Swedish dispatch and security service had reported Islamist extremism as an existential threat for the past six years. Therefore, a qualitative methodological approach will be applied to the quantitative results in order to... (More)
The aim of the thesis is to investigate the impact of mediatization on the harshen Swedish terror law with the intention to explicate an interaction between media and politics. The analysis applies a deductive approach based on critical security studies and theories of mediatization which will adhere process-tracking as a main strategy. The process-tracking will not show any correlation since the quantitative result had a significant difference in the reporting of articles of Islamist extremism whilst reports from the Swedish dispatch and security service had reported Islamist extremism as an existential threat for the past six years. Therefore, a qualitative methodological approach will be applied to the quantitative results in order to enunciate a conclusion. The qualitative analysis of the articles reported that political actors polarize, intensify, and concretize, with the logic of media as an orientation, in order to reach out with their message. Consequently, the terror laws are assessed to have undergone mediatization in terms of the possibility to deduce a connection between the accelerated reporting in media and the terrorist attacks that hit Europe before finally landing in a harshen Swedish terror law.
