Mediernes portrættering af udviklingsbistanden

Frida Kruse Lind

Studenteropgave: Bachelorprojekt


This study investigates how the medias portray the development aid in the following five Dan-ish newspapers: Jyllands-Posten, Information, Kristeligt Dagblad, Berlingske and Politiken in the year of 2017. This is investigated through a content analysis in which a framing-analysis is included. Furthermore the study addresses some of the problems and advantages the news-papers’ portraying can have on the readers. For this discussion the Agenda-setting theory is included.
The study concludes that there is a lack of focus on personal stories and development pro-jects. Instead there is a much stronger focus on economy, responsibility and political strate-gies. That might make it difficult for the reader to relate to the development aid. Furthermore a limited use of visual effects such as graphics might make it even more difficult to understand the numbers behind the development aid.
Moreover the content analysis investigates whether or not the development aid is portrayed as effective. The study concludes that the newspapers neither portray a positive effect nor a negative effect of the development aid. However the papers portray a slight hope that the de-velopment aid will have a positive impact in the future. Despite of that, about half of the newspapers are portraying an organizational misdeed where the development aid has been administrated poorly. This might give the readers the impression that the development aid is not functioning as well as it should.
