Abstract: We propose a new approach to study the Kronecker coefficients by using the Schur-Weyl duality between the symmetric group and the partition algebra. We explain the limiting behaviour and associated bounds in the context of the partition algebra. Our analysis leads to a uniform description of the reduced Kronecker coefficients when one of the indexing partitions is a hook or a two-part partition.
