Bahrain - literally “two seas” in Arabic - is an island nation in the Arabian Gulf. The Khalifa family have ruled the country for more than two centuries, albeit as a British Protectorate until 1971, and the King continues to rule as the supreme political authority. A number of serious human rights violations are ongoing in Bahrain, and human rights defenders operating in the country do so in a hostile environment and have been subjected to arbitrary detention, torture, ill-treatment, threats and harassment.
