Stigma as a Medium for Intergroup Relations: Fukushima Residents’ Perceptions of Stigma Following Japan’s 2011 Nuclear Disaster

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This research analyzes multi-dimensional attributes of stigma as divisive mechanisms in intergroup relations in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. After the disaster, Fukushima residents expressed felt prejudice and discrimination from people outside of Fukushima. As part of ongoing research on communication and community in Fukushima, this study examined how residents perceived stigmas imposed on them and the sources that shaped their perceptions. Research results indicated that residents perceived stigmas as a phenomenon created and infringed upon them from outsiders, which was expressed in affective, cognitive and behavioral dimensions. Multiple sources, such as media, interpersonal contacts, and government shaped stigma perceptions. Despite many negative perceptions, residents also expressed clarified values, a more supportive community, changed priorities and new future goals. Implications of the results in intergroup relations and conflicts are discussed.
