The biduns in Kuwait: On the Margins of Nationality and Society

 

البدون في الكويت : على هامش الجنسية والمجتمع

 

Les bidouns au Koweït : aux marges de la nationalité et de la société

A public lecture by Dr Claire Beaugrand (Political Scientiste, Ifpo)

Abstract

Since the early days of independent Kuwait, the conflict about entitlement to nationality opposing the state to part of its population - the biduns (literally the “without”nationality) - has found no solution. Documenting the conditions that rendered possible the emergence and persistence of this undefined category of biduns, the conference will shed light on this protracted issue of Gulf citizenries.
