    • Abstract:
      The article discusses the 2011 pro-democracy movement in Bahrain, which is part of the 2011 Arab Spring Uprisings, with a particular focus on American, Saudi Arabian and Iranian foreign policy in this regard. U.S. President Barack Obama's support of Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa in the face of pro-democracy protests is discussed. An overview of the sectarian nature of Bahrain's pro-democracy uprising, which consists largely of Shia protests against the country's Sunni-dominated government, is provided.
