Anastasia Nosova - Associate Research Fellow

Anastasia Nosova - Associate Research FellowAnastasia has acquired her BA degree in Asian and African Studies, with the specialization in the History of Arab Countries, at St. Petersburg State University, Russia. During her undergraduate studies, and particularly after a year abroad Arabic language training in Kuwait, she became interested in carrying out research on the Gulf states, and further did her Masters degree in Gulf Studies at the University of Exeter.

In 2012, Anastasia started her PhD in Political Science in London School of Economics, Department of Government. Her thesis is dedicated to the dynamics of political participation of the business sector in Kuwait, and she is also affiliated with LSE Kuwait Programme on Development, Governance and Globalisation in the Gulf.

The major sphere of Anastasia’s research is the analysis of state-business relations in Kuwait. Focusing on the last two decades of the country’s history, she intends to assess the current level of involvement of Kuwaiti business community representatives in politics, looking into the means of political influence and participation they utilise. The study is aimed to provide the basis for the understanding of the modern political economy and power mechanisms at work in the oil-rentier state of Kuwait, as well as the complex socioeconomic processes and the rise of new social forces that the country has been witnessing recently.
