Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain (ADHRB) presents Sectarian Discrimination and Extremism in Bahrain’s Security Forces: Questions for US Policy, a white paper analyzing abusive recruitment and training practices within the Bahraini security sector in an era of increasingly unrestricted American security cooperation. The paper assesses how defense sector discrimination undermines both the enjoyment of fundamental human rights in Bahrain as well as US interests in the kingdom’s long-term stability, identifying a number of policy prescriptions that could begin to address this critical aspect of the US-Bahrain security relationship.
