Abstract:This thesis analyses the way peacekeeping is represented to Canadians through stories about Canada's military contributions to the missions in Afghanistan by The Globe and Mail and the National Post from October 2001 to March 2008. A content analysis identifies whether a peacekeeping or a war discourse was dominant in press representations of the Canadian Forces' missions in Afghanistan, and a critical discourse analysis is conducted to consider the various ways that the mythology of peacekeeping is manoeuvred. It finds that the myth is both celebrated and denigrated, helping to legitimise the foreign military presence in Afghanistan, at the same time as contributing to a discursive shift in the way that the Canadian Forces is represented. The research suggests that a war order of discourse has been interspersed throughout such news coverage contributing to an overall shift in the dominance of the peacekeeping myth in relation to the Canadian Forces.
