Anti-Semitism, Securitization and the Media
Analyzing the role of media in relation to the increasing notion of anti-Semitism in Sweden – An issue for Securitization?Maria H Owiredu
This paper has examined the potential power of media in relation to ‘security’ for theJews in the Swedish society. My intention was to find out whether media constitute a risk for the increasing notion of anti-Semitism which also enhances the threat for the Jews inSweden to become a security matter and therefore result in a need for securitization. Theanalysis has been done partly through presentation of material which gives us theunderstanding that anti-Semitism is spreading in Sweden in relation to escalations of conflicts in the Middle East. A critical discourse analysis of two Swedish newspapers has been made, in order to see whether these papers did present a biased view over the ‘CastLead’ offensive in Gaza from Dec 27, 2008 to Jan 18, 2009 which eventually results inthese negative notions against Jews in Sweden. The critical situation for the Jews hasthen been placed in relation to security where the paper looked closer upon whether thesituation for the Jews has become severe to the extent that it is in need of a securitizationact in order to protect the Jewish minority group in Sweden.
