The 'iron fist policy': Criminalization of peaceful dissent in Kuwait
Since 2011, in the face of increased criticism and amidst a volatile regional context, the authorities have taken a series of steps which have seriously eroded human rights, with the right to freedom of expression among the main casualties. The authorities have arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned perceived critics including human rights defenders, activists, journalists and lawyers using laws that criminalize peaceful dissent and breach Kuwait’s obligations under international law.
