Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


This study aims to examine how Børneavisen (The Children’s Newspaper) convey journalism for children and how it differentiates from classic journalism, as well as how the deviation between these two affect Børneavisens audience’s prospect of participating as active citizens. A quantitative content analysis of Børneavisen is provided as well as an interview with the newspaper’s Editor in Chief. The study relies on Galtung and Ruge’s taxonomy of classic news values as well as Harcup and O’Neill’s extended version of them, in order to clarify the fundamental distinction between news values applied to classic journalism versus Børneavisen. Furthermore, sociological childhood research by Hanne Warming as well as the Convention on the Rights of the Child of the United Nations is included, in order to examine how Børneavisen’s way of conveying news, correlate with these childhood approaches. The study concludes that the main difference between classic journalism and Børneavisen, is the lack of conflict orientated news in Børneavisen, which is dominant in classic journalism, because they aim to create more constructive and solution-oriented journalism. Børneavisen tries to protect and shield the children by omitting certain stories, hence, they come in short conveying the same journalistic content as classic journalism.
