Abstract:

The unrestricted movement of EU citizens from one country to another has been one of the fundamental principles of the Union. On the other hand, this issue has also attracted criticism, particularly from the radical right and so-called populist parties, or the supporters of these movements. Part of the population of Europe regards immigration and the unrestricted movement of people as a threat to the stability and prosperity of their own society. Through these critical perspectives, permanent immigration is viewed as a larger problem, as its effects on the host countries are more permanent than in the case of temporary residence. Through the same perspectives, the short-term but uncontrolled stay of foreigners is often linked to crime. This study concentrates on what kind of image a significant part of the Finnish media has given of a recent case of the foreigners that have attracted large attention in the country.

 

Rezumat:

Circula?ia libera a ceta?enilor Uniunii Europene dintr-o ?ara în alta a reprezentat unul dintre principiile fundamentale ale Uniunii. Pe de alta parte, aceasta problema a atras, de asemenea, critici, mai ales din partea radicalilor de dreapta oi aoa-numitelor partide populiste sau a simpatizan?ilor acestor miocari. O parte a popula?iei Europei priveote imigra?ia oi circula?ia libera a persoanelor ca o amenin?are pentru stabilitatea oi prosperitatea societa?ii lor. Din aceasta perspectiva, imigra?ia permanenta este vazuta ca o problema mai mare, dupa cum efectele sale asupra ?arilor gazda sunt mai durabile decât în cazul oederilor temporare. Potrivit aceloraoi puncte de vedere, oederea scurta dar necontrolata a ceta?enilor straini este adesea legata de criminalitate. Acest studiu se concentreaza asupra imaginii pe care a creat-o o semnificativa parte din mass-media finlandeza unui caz recent al strainilor care au atras aten?ia în aceasta ?ara.
