Abstract
This thesis studies how Sweden’s state identity is constructed within the discourse on Swedish Migration Policy following the European refugee crisis in 2015. Identity is studied by seeing the constructions of identity and policy as discursively interlinked and by using the notion of processes of linking and differentiation. The material analyzed are statements made by the Swedish government in order to see whether or not a change has happened when it comes to Sweden’s identity in relation to the adoption of a stricter migration policy, consisting of imposing border controls and restricted family reunification.
