Early efforts to establish a constitutional dialogue in Bahrain led by US Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman with the help of RN Chairman Prof. Chibli Mallat and the Harvard law school team who worked on a Constitutional Options study, were recently revealed in a feature story in Global Post. In a comment on the story, Mallat noted “the importance of reversing the setbacks in Bahrain with constitutional science tools.” He also saluted the remarkable convergence of the efforts from leading Bahrainis, in power and in opposition, “against the putschists in Manama and Riyad”. The Bahrain Constitutional Options study was published by the Virginia Journal of International Law, and by RN.
