YOUTH AND ALIENATION: A CASE STUDY OFTHE KUWAITI SOCIETY

Auther : Dr. Ali Al-Tarrah and Dr. Jasim Al-Kandari

 

1.   Knowledge of the extent to which youth in the Kuwaiti society suffer from social alienation;

2.   understanding the nature of the changes that the Kuwaiti society is currently going through and their effect on creating social alienation among the youth and

3.   recognizing the group of youth who suffer from social alienation and making recommendations for strengthening their position in the Kuwaiti society.

          Dean’s Scale for social alienation was administered to 824 Kuwait University students.  His scores on the three-dimension powerlessness, normlessness and social alienation indicate high degree of alienation.

         The results indicate that women and younger respondents suffer more from social alienation, while the respondents did not differ significantly regarding their nationality, marital status and parental levels of income and education.

         The authors conclude that youth in Kuwait generally suffer from one dimension, i.e. powerlessness probably because family members, especially father and friends are always ready to enforce their ideas about what a youth should do in his/her future life.  This phenomenon may make the youth unable to establish clear goals in his/her future life and may force him/her to depend on others for specifying future life goals.
