Henriksson, I & Jönsson, M. Den svenska glasburken. En diskursanalys av Statens Offentliga Utredningar/ The Swedish glass jar. A discourse analysis of official government reports. Examensarbete i Socialt arbete 30 poäng. Malmö högskola: Hälsa och Samhälle, enheten för Hälsa och Samhälle, 2011. The purpose of this paper is to critically examine the representations that are created in official government reports on the "immigrant" and how, or whether this changed over time. We analyzed five different official government reports from the years 1972, 1989, 1995, 2003 and 2010. This is a discourse analysis where we analyze government reports with focus on how they create "the other" of the people who are classified as refugees or immigrants, and what representations are created. The theories we use in our work is about how discrimination appear primarily through the written language. We used a lot of the research made by social scientists Ylva Brune and Kristina Boréus, both as a theoretical framework and methodology to go through with the analysis. The results showed significant changes in awareness about the subject but not as big changes in how they actually created "the immigrant”. We argue that there is a need for social workers to engage in critical analyses of state polices as they in many ways shape the frame of our work. Thought this essay we hope to contribute to a more nuanced and less dichotomous discussion on issues of migration.
