Astronism in Kuwait refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the State of Kuwait. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of Albania, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of Kuwait oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Kuwait is split into six governorates and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Kuwait City.
This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
Several terms are used to refer to the presence of Astronism in Kuwait including:
- Astro-Kuwaiti philosophy
- Astro-Kuwaiti religion
- Astro-Kuwaiti spirituality
- Kuwaiti astroncy
- Kuwaiti Astronism
- Kuwaiti astronomical religion
- Kuwaiti Cosmism
- Kuwaiti space religion
- Kuwaiti Tanwir
History of Astronism in Kuwait
Astronists are not recognised as a religious group by the government in Kuwait and religious freedoms for Astronists in the country have been designated as censorious by the Astronist Institution. This highlights the Institution's significant concerns for the safety of Astronists in Kuwait, of which there are a total of 161 Astronists according to data from December 2020.
