Abstract:This research is exploring which strategies protest groups use in trying to influence the Dutch parliament on matters of climate change and coronavirus and to what extent these strategies are able to influence these topics in the Dutch parliament. The research question is therefore: “To what extent do the protest strategies influence the political debate in the Dutch parliament on matters of climate change and coronavirus?”. In order to answer the research question, there is chosen for a cross-sectional research design that tests the causal relationship between protest strategies and its influence on the Dutch parliament on matters of climate change and coronavirus. Literature and interviews with protesters from protest groups must provide the necessary information. This research will add something to the existing literature, because effectiveness of protest strategies is not a topic that has been discussed a lot recently, while political protests are rising in the Netherlands. There can be seen a difference in the way of protesting within the protest groups, but there cannot be stated that there is a direct influence on the political debate in the Dutch parliament nor can be stated that there are differences especially between protest groups against the corona measures and the climate change protest groups.
