Abstract:The aim of this study is to research the influence of the use of language in newspaper articles from the Netherlands and Germany on the reproduction of social inequalities regarding Muslims and Islamophobia. The study focuses on articles published in 2010 in the newspapers FAZ, Bild, NRC and Telegraaf. The analysis of the language in the articles is conducted from a Critical Discourse Analysis perspective and is done for each country separately. The analysis of German articles, on the one hand, delivers evidence of strong framing and the construction of a moral panic. In the Dutch articles, on the other hand, not enough evidence is found for claiming that Islamophobia has been reproduced in terms of moral panics. The study concludes with an account of the similarities and differences of the two discourses and the language used.
