A swedish newspapers contribution to move the mountain : A postkolonial study on Dagens Nyheters reporting about apartheid 1948-1994 (English)
Abstract [en]

This study is about how the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter writes about apartheid in South Africa in the years of 1948 to 1994. The newspaper's digital archive has been investigated to achieve this purpose. Sweden has become known for its commitment to abolishing apartheid, and this paper finds out if this is in line with how the Swedish press writes about apartheid. The result shows that Dagens Nyheter was consistently opposed to apartheid, and reporting largely depends on the system being unacceptable in a civilized world.

Commitment extends across many levels of society, and the workforce on Dagens Nyheter takes a stand despite the fact that the newspaper is called independent liberal. It turns out that many players get space in the newspaper

 

This civilized world like Sweden and other parts of the western world wants South Africa to be included seems to be determined in advance. This is explained by postcolonial theory.
