Social services in newspapers : A qualitative study of how social services work is produced in local and national Swedish newspapers in connection with five child welfare cases (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to make a qualitative study of how social services work is produced in local and national Swedish newspapers in connection with five child welfare cases. The starting point of the study was qualitative and based on five selected childcare cases with a total of 136 articles. To analyze these articles discourse analysis was used with inspiration from Foucault. The material was analyzed from the theory of framing and the concepts of power and scapegoat. The results and analysis section are divided into three main themes with subheadings. The first theme is about how it is written about the work of social services based on child welfare cases. The second theme is about scapegoats and the third theme deals with the similarities and differences we have found between the national and local newspaper articles. The results of the study have shown that the social services work with children and young people is presented as responsible for the events that are written and as an organization with deficiency. The result has also shown that the media has the power to choose who will be heard, what to publish and how to write about events. We have also analyzed how the newspapers choose to frame and highlight certain perspectives of an event through the theory of framing. We have found differences and similarities between how national and local newspapers write about social services work with children and young people.
