Keynote Katherine Stroebe: 'The impact of chronic disaster on health and coping: A social psychological perspective on the Groningen gas extraction'

For the past five years I have been studying the psycho-social consequences of a man-made and chronic disaster: the gas extraction and subsequent earthquakes in the North East of the Netherlands. Hundreds of induced earthquakes have, bit by bit, inflicted damage that is large and disruptive enough to speak of a disaster (not in an acute sense, but in the sense of a chronic problem leading to accumulated damage on a disastrous scale). Among residents, there is a strong sense of injustice about the scale of damage inflicted and the inadequacy of government response. I will present results from a longitudinal study (2016-2019) in which we study the impact of the gas extraction on health, safety and justice perceptions, societal trust and action or coping tendencies. This talk will focus on the health impact of the gas extraction and discuss factors that exacerbate or reduce this health impact (e.g., perceptions of safety, lack of trust in government, social cohesion). I will also discuss action and coping in response to the earthquakes from a social psychological perspective. Why do people not mobilize and demonstrate on a large scale (think of the current series of demonstrations by farmers, teachers etc)? Does this mean they are inactive? I present results from interview studies to provide further insight into these questions.
