The Evolution of the Kuwaiti ‘Opposition’: Electoral Politics after the Arab Spring
Tavana, Daniel L.
The evolution of Kuwaiti opposition groups following changes to the country's electoral law fundamentally altered the dynamics of electoral contests after the Arab Spring, the author writes. This brief is the first of four resulting from a May 2018 workshop held in Kuwait by the Baker Institute in partnership with the Alsalam Center for Strategic and Developmental Studies. This work is part of a two-year project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York on “Building Pluralistic and Inclusive States Post-Arab Spring.”
