Sydsvenskan sees itself as an advocate of the region around Malmö in southern Sweden. It is one of the few Swedish newspapers to have published the notorious Muhammad cartoons. The paper belongs to the Bonnier group and until 1966 had close ties to the Conservative Party. Since 1966 it has described itself as "independently liberal".
