ABSTRACT

This study aims to search for strategies to improve local residents’ acceptance of nuclear power and trust recovery among people living near nuclear power station. For this objective, we built a theoretical model and empirically analyzed the micro-data at the individual level to highlight the particular attribute of each nuclear site, suggesting the implication of strategies for trust recovery. We examined the impact of (1) socio-demographic variables (gender, education, economic status, age, social class, ideology, and religion), (2) perceived risk (perceived risk, perceived benefit, trust, stigma, knowledge), (3) risk communication (quality of information, quantity of negative information), (4) social event (Fukushima accident, and corruption of KHNP), and (5) localities (economic, political characteristics and identity) on acceptance of nuclear power and strategies for trust recovery based on responses from local residents in four nuclear power stations in Korea. We discussed the implications of strategies for trust recovery considering the characteristics of localities.
