Abstract [en]

Diaspora community discussions on open online spaces in Sweden reveal different dynamics between migrants online. The chapter focuses on such platforms where one can examine the identities of migrants and critically analyse the discourses and ideologies emerging in the texts in commentary sections. This chapter aims to study the digital interactivity of the Arab diaspora on the Alkompis and Sweden Today Facebook pages. Additionally, it profiles the type of news the diaspora interacts with, by analysing their comments on certain issues tied to their home/host countries. To better understand the topic under study, quantitative content analysis and qualitative critical discourse analysis (CDA) approaches were applied.

Abstract [sv]

LVU-kampanjen och koranbränningarna har blottat sårbarheter i den svenska opinionsbildningen med globala konsekvenser. Konflikter kring sociala myndigheters ingripanden, yttrandefrihetens och hetslagstiftningens gränser och kulturell rasism i de digitala mediernas tidevarv visar hur utsatta de svenska medierna och därmed offentligheten är för möjliga påverkanskampanjer och desinformation. Berättelserna om maktmissbruk och myndigheternas övertramp slår an strängar i konspirationsteoretiskt meningsskapande där olika samhällsgrupper ställs mot varandra. 

Den känslobaserade mobiliseringen av engagemang i sociala medier online men också symbolhandlingar offline eller IRL (in real life) ställer medierna inför ett antal utmaningar. Påverkanskampanjer utvecklar särskild kraft när de skjuter in sig på äkta och upplevda orättvisor och känslor av maktlöshet. Den journalistiska nyhetsförmedlingen hotas, men också myndighetsutövningen. Vad kan medierna lära sig av LVU-kampanjen och koranbränningar som hypermediala fenomen där den äkta och virtuella verkligheten förstärker varandra? Går det att återupprätta förtroende i den journalistiska rapporteringen?

Abstract [en]

Research indicates that media reporting, particularly on immigrants, depicts them in a stereotypical image. This image is tied to the type of information and voices used in the stories which contribute to the poor quality of news reporting. A key issue driving these negative portrayals is the manner in which journalists refer to and describe certain groups, and whose perspectives and voices they include in their reporting. This practice within journalism has attracted significant critique. This study explores the potential for adopting a more constructive approach to reporting on immigrants. Utilizing constructive journalism and peace journalism principles as a theoretical framework, and Critical Discourse Analysis as a methodological tool, the article examines how immigrants were covered in the local Swedish newspaper, Barometern, between 2017 and 2021. Results suggest that integrating constructive strategies in stories about immigrants facilitates a more balanced representation.

Abstract [en]

Across the past year a huge Twitter campaign against the Swedish social services authorities has been launched. A previous study examining Arab Diaspora online platforms in Sweden underlined that the Arab diaspora online community in Sweden was angry and hostile describing alleged abuses of Swedish social benefits. Racialization and discrimination discourses were revealed in the analysis. Racialization appeared in different levels. The “us” and “them” dichotomy appeared during disagreements. Commentators repeatedly noted their difficulties in being considered Swedish and impressions of discrimination as a result. A discussion among diaspora community construct life in Sweden between Utopia and dystopia. The current study aims at looking at the latest crisis with the social services and examine if the twitter movement in this case construct emotional mobilization and if there are other actors who contribute to the escalation abusing the situation of immigrants in Sweden.

Så kan unga lockas av nyheter : Labbtester med 18-25-åringar gav unika resultat
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med projektet Young citizens and the quality of news: Construals, Emotions and Strategies har varit att utforska nya sätt att undersöka hur unga betraktar nyheter, hur de interagerar med nyhetsinnehåll och hur känsloreaktioner inverkar på bedömningen av kvalitet. 

Studien är gjord med hjälp av ett flertal metoder, både kvantitativa, kvalitativa och laborativa. Genom att be unga mellan 18 och 25 år att själva leta upp nyheter på sin mobil och samtidigt mäta deras ögonrörelser, genom att visa dem ett antal nyhetsklipp och mäta deras reaktioner samt genom att göra djupintervjuer med de unga om vad de sett och hur de upplevt det, har forskargruppen kunnat dra flera slutsatser kring hur unga definierar och reagerar på nyheter. 

Nu finns rapporten som sammanfattar projektet att läsa och ladda ner på Medier & demokratis hemsida. 

Studien visar bland annat att kvalitet för unga mediekonsumenter är intimt sammankopplat med upplevd relevans och att nyheters förmåga att beröra emotionellt beskrivs som väldigt viktigt för hur de unga i studien bedömer kvalitet. Hur de unga gör för att hitta nyheter varierar, men ett tydligt mönster bland studiens deltagare är att de föredrar textbaserade nyhetsartiklar. 

I rapporten ger forskarna flera tips på vad redaktioner bör göra för att lyckas nå de unga läsarna.

Abstract [en]

With the increase in migration to the Western countries, social media became the alternative space for Arab diaspora to meet and bring in the issues of their concern. Diaspora community discussions on open online spaces in Sweden reveal different dynamics between migrants online. The paper focuses on such platforms where one can examine the identities of migrants and critically analyse the discourses and ideologies emerging in the texts in commentary sections.

This paper aims to study the digital interactivity of the Arab diaspora on the Alkompis and Sweden Today Facebook pages. Additionally, it profiles the type of news the diaspora interacts with, by analysing their comments on certain issues tied to their home/host countries. To better understand the topic under study, quantitative content analysis and qualitative critical discourse analysis (CDA) approaches were applied
