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.
