Abstract [en]

In 2014, following the Islamic State’s [IS] offensive against the Yezidi minority of northern Iraq, the self-proclaimed Caliphate revisited the practice of sexual slavery; a feat boastfully celebrated in IS propaganda. Subsequently, IS appears to employ sexual violence not only as a somatic weapon of war, but one of propaganda by deed. The purpose of this thesis was thus to investigate whether IS uses sexual violence as propaganda by deed and consequently their positioning intentions: what those deeds attempts to communicate. Five humanitarian reports and a selection of IS propaganda was subjected to qualitative content analysis; iden-tifying five coherent themes of acts and narratives of sexual violence. Thereafter, using an analytical framework comprising of the positioning triad and an approach towards propa-ganda analysis, the themes were explored through semiotic analysis. This study indicates that IS employs sexual violence as propaganda by deed; attempting to influence both local and global audiences for a variety of reasons.
