The construction of reality : A narrative analysis of the Chinese embassy (English)
Abstract [en]

This study aims to understand China's use of soft power in Sweden. It focuses on the use of strategic narratives by the Chinese embassy in Sweden. Understanding narratives and analysing them is important because they can uncover political agendas. In order to understand how the embassy constructs an image of China, the study will explore its use of strategic narratives. The narrative analysis, conducted on texts produced by the embassy, demonstrates that there are two metanarratives being constructed: that China is harmonious, and that China is misunderstood.
