Inclusion in Post-2011 Kuwait.

The briefs in this collection examine the countervailing dynamics of pluralism and inclusion in Kuwait since the onset of protests in 2010, paying particular attention to the political, religious, social and gender dynamics in Kuwait.

The reports are based on 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.”
