Research Interest

I am interested in Information seeking behavior and social networking.

Presentation: 
Information seeking behavior of members of Kuwait National Assembly

The Kuwaiti government consists of the executive, legislative and judicial bodies. The legislative body is the Kuwait National Assembly (KNA). Legislators affect the decision-making process. They represent a broad range of interests, backgrounds, experiences, and networks. The legislators acquire information that reflects on their work. Legislators have the privilege to suggest new laws and legislate proposals. The decision-making process largely depends on the quality of information acquired. As such, the quality of information provided to them or acquired by them may affect the quality of the legislative proposals they present.

The purpose of the study is to identify and evaluate the information seeking behavior of members of the KNA. It will aim to evaluate the information role in the political life. Moreover, the study will indicate the important role of the administrative assistants on acquiring information related to the member’s legislative work. The study will help to identify the role of the RIC on the information process of the members of the KNA. Furthermore, the study will provide suggestion that will help improve the services and resources to enhance the utilization of this center. Finally, it will discover the impact of SNSs on the members of the KNA work.
