This chapter assesses the changing role of Brotherhood affiliates in Kuwait, Qatar, and the UAE in the first decade of the 2000s, with a view to highlighting the increased politicization of the Kuwaiti branch and heightened marginalization of the Emirati, alongside the informalization of the Qatari affiliate. It presents the differing responses of the governments in Kuwait, Qatar, and the UAE to the Arab Spring, specifically how these governments sought to manage the movement toward greater political involvement and liberties for their citizenry and how they treated Islamists involved in that movement specifically. In describing this tumultuous time, the chapter continues tracing how Islamist influence is felt inside these states and how rentier Islamism is politically adaptive.
