‚ÄčThe Foreign and Commonwealth Office is not in a position to make precise details available as we have a duty to maintain the confidentiality and confidence of our partners.

The Government works with a number of implementation partners and beneficiaries to support Bahraini-led reform. These programmes aim to support progress on building effective and accountable institutions, strengthening the rule of law, and justice reform. All of our work is in line with international standards and aims to share the UK's expertise and experience. All projects are regularly monitored and reviewed to ensure training provided by or on behalf of the British Government fully complies with its domestic and international human rights obligations.
