14 December 2021

Bahrain is a Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office human rights priority country. We regularly raise human rights issues and individual cases with senior members of the Government of Bahrain, and continue to raise specific cases with senior interlocutors, as well as with the independent human rights oversight bodies.

We are happy to work with partners, including the Human Rights Council, to promote human rights in Bahrain and elsewhere.
