Bahrain is a country comprising several islands in the Persian Gulf. It is a hereditary constitutional monarchy; the official language is Arabic and the state religion is Islam. As such, the shari’ah (Islamic legal code) is a principal source for legislation within the country. The nature, growth, and control of media in contemporary Bahrain can be understood through the Bahraini uprising of February 2011. Thus, this entry first discusses the Bahraini Uprising and then examines the media and its use by the state and the citizenry.
