The controversial plan to give Kuwait’s stateless people citizenship of a tiny, poor African island

Comoros, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, is one of the smallest countries in Africa.
Excluding the contested island of Mayotte, the Comoros archipelago covers about 1,650 square kilometres, roughly one and a half times as big as Hong Kong.
Fewer than a million people live on the islands, made up of a variety of ethnicities that reflect the nation’s location at a historical crossroads.
But if a new plan gets the go-ahead, Comoros may gain significantly more people – by offering “economic citizenship” to thousands, if not many more, of stateless people from Kuwait.
And many experts are not so sure this is a good thing.
