THE UNANTICIPATED CONSEQUENCES OF POPULATION POLICIES IN KUWAIT

Auther : Lubna Ahmed Al-Kazi

 

         Economic as well as social factors have led to the creation of a national minority in Kuwait. This study examines some of the unanticipated consequences of the State’s policies on population composition. Some policies aimed at increasing fertility rates and encouraging the younger generation to marry earlier did not succeed. Changes in the citizenship laws also aimed at increasing the number of Kuwaitis who were eligible for naturalization. However, the policies that were meant to reduce dependence ratios among migrants and enforce stricter laws on entry of uneducated labour failed to achieve their goals. The unanticipated consequences have led to a growing migrant population with features that the State did not envisage two decades ago. This paper, examines how manual labour (domestic servants) has increased, Asians have increased at a higher rate than those from Arab countries leading to cultural diversity. The causes of the problem of those without nationality or the Stateless Bedoun group are also analyzed.
