Abstract

This paper deals with Kuwait’s current political paralysis and the stagnation of its democratic institutional development. In order to do so, it evaluates the ‘institutional settings’ of the Kuwaiti polity by applying rent-seeking theory. It therefore examines the spread of rent-seeking behavior as a factor that is eroding the existing political institutions.
