Answered on: 16 April 2018

The Integrated Activity Fund is not being used to fund or sponsor Bahraini bodies dealing with security matters. The Government works with various implementation partners to support Bahraini-led reform, including in the field of human rights. These programmes aim to support progress on building effective and accountable institutions, strengthening the rule of law, and justice reform. All of our work is in line with international standards, and aims to share UK expertise and experience. Any training provided by, or on behalf of, the British Government fully complies with our domestic and international human rights obligations.
