As the ‘Day of Rage’ – Bahrain’s own demonstrations for change – approaches on 14 February, take some time to familiarise yourself with the contemporary issues in play in Bahrain.  

The report can be downloaded from: HERE


“This extensive new report provides an unparalleled overview of the deteriorating political, economic and human rights conditions in Bahrain, bringing together the escalating trends of government repression, widening inequalities, institutional discrimination and state-sponsored sectarian tensions into a disturbing picture of a country in crisis. The report challenges the widespread image of Bahrain as a model of regional success, and demonstrates clearly that without urgent reforms – outlined in the form of a set of comprehensive recommendations – Bahrain will face intensifying social and state failure over the coming decade, with deleterious consequences for regional and international security. As such, this report is essential reading for policymakers, scholars and practitioners working on issues in the Middle East and Gulf regions.”

Dr Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, Executive Director, Institute for Policy Research & Development; author, A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
Holy Qur’an: Chapter 4, Verse 75
