Bahrain is a country case study in the 2013 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy. As such, we monitor the human rights situation in Bahrain and issue a biannual update. We will review all countries with human rights concerns in our preparation for the 2014 Annual Report, which will be published in early 2015. We continue to assist the Bahrain government with its reforms including on human rights and the rule of law.
