Crack-down in Bahrain - Blog - The Arabist | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

We talked about Bahrain in our last podcast. I have been in touch with students and professors there for a story on the how the crackdown on the country's Shia protest movement has affected universities for The Chronicle of Higher Education. The incredible verdicts against doctors have gotten the most attention, but students and professors have also been targeted:

Bahrain: Reinstate Ousted Students, Faculty | Human Rights Watch | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Universities in Bahrain should immediately reinstate all students, faculty, and staff who were dismissed solely for expressing opinions critical of the government and ruling family or attending overwhelmingly peaceful anti-government demonstrations in February and March of this year, Human Rights Watch said today. Human Rights Watch also called on the University of Bahrain to stop requiring students to sign oaths of loyalty to the ruling Al Khalifa family and the government as a condition for enrollment.

Education International - Asia Pacific

EI and Amnesty International are calling for the release of Jalila al-Salman and Mahdi Issa Mahdi Abu Dheeb, two members of the Bahrain Teachers' Association (BTA) who were arrested during the unrest in March and April 2011. They remain incarcerated awaiting trial in a civilian court, which has been postponed until further notice.
Re-elected EI General Secretary, Fred van Leeuwen, has continued to express concern over their detention for exercising their rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly and has urged the Government to immediately release them and to hold to account those responsible for their arrest and possible abuse.

Bahrain professor sacked for human rights activities - The Irish Times - Mon, Sep 12, 2011

Bahrain professor sacked for human rights activities - The Irish Times - Mon, Sep 12, 2011 | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

DEFENDING HUMAN rights can be a perilous task. It has cost Abdulla Alderazi his job as a professor in the University of Bahrain and threatened his personal safety.

Last month he received a letter of dismissal from the university informing him of their decision, “for reasons of my activity”, he said.

In Dublin this week for a conference held by Frontline, an international organisation that supports defenders of human rights across the world, Prof Alderazi expressed an unshakeable desire to continue his work as secretary general of the Bahrain Human Rights Society.

“Otherwise the suffering of these victims will continue if we don’t go and document it and report it and show the world what happened.” What has been happening is a push from the people of Bahrain for greater political and social freedoms, in line with the sentiment crossing the region following the Arab Spring.

The professor and his society have been at the forefront of this movement which was forcibly dissolved almost two years ago for advocating personal rights.

EI, together with Amnesty International, urgently calls on its member organisations to appeal for the release of Jalila al-Salman and Mahdi 'Issa Mahdi Abu Dheeb, Vice-President and President of the Bahraini Teachers Association (BTA) arrested along with several other board members of the BTA. While we understand their colleagues have been released, Jalila al-Salman and Mahdi 'Issa Mahdi Abu Dheeb remain incarcerated awaiting trial in a civilian court. EI also condemns government’s action to dissolve the BTA and replace its leaders with others more amenable to the regime.

Human rights concerns make the teaching of ethics impossible — Irish Medical Times

Human rights concerns make the teaching of ethics impossible — Irish Medical Times | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
For the College to maintain its links with the regime and to ostensibly play down the Bahraini state’s continuing and serious mistreatment of doctors during the ongoing popular dissent is most regrettable. The College’s public statements on the matter were, in my view, too little, too late, self-serving and inadequate.
I think therefore that it would be impossible for me to teach — of all things — ethics and law in the College at the present time and I must therefore decline the offer to contribute to next year’s MSc.
