Abstract [en]

This decade has been marked by a series of shifts in the representation of migrants and refugees in the European media. These shifts, however, must be seen in relation to a number of fundamental, underlying components of media coverage of refugees, migrants, and what has been termed the “refugee crisis.” In this chapter, we take the recent events in the United States as a point of departure for discussing the media coverage of migrants, refugees, and diasporic communities in Europe, as well as a more specific look at Sweden, in order to consider the nature of the migrant/refugee discussion (from economics to culture to terrorism) in relation to the fluidity of the lines between migrant and refugee and the placement of these groups into “states of exception.” To conclude, we present an argument as to how critical geopolitics in conjunction with media and communication studies offers a meaningful framework to make sense of these shifting lines.
