This thesis is an extensive analysis of the roles of the board of directors of the joint stock company in Kuwait. The main focus will be on the duties, powers and liabilities of the directors. The area is examined under Kuwait Company Law and at the same time where there is no regulation under Kuwaiti Law comparison with other laws is also provided. The analysis of this area will be broken down and developed through seven parts.
