BIRD works with victims of human rights abuse in Bahrain to document and publicise abuses and provide recourse to aid and justice. We engage with key international actors and governments to advocate for policies that support human rights in Bahrain. In partnership with leading NGOs, the United Nations and allies in the British and European Parliaments, BIRD’s work promotes human rights and effective accountability and campaigns for democratic reform in Bahrain and the wider Arab Gulf
