After Four Years of Unrest, How Can the United States Help Stabilize Bahrain?

Date: 
February 11, 2015 - 4:30pm

Please join Human Rights First for a discussion on the current situation in Bahrain four years after the February 14th revolution. The country remains polarized with little prospect of an end to its political unrest. Human Rights First will release a blueprint outlining measures the U.S. can implement, including how to address issues of corruption and security force reform in the country, to help bring stability to Bahrain.
