6. Recalling its guidelines for reporting under the Convention, 3 the Committee recommends that, in its next periodic report, the State party provide statistics on the ethnic composition of the population, including asylum-seekers, refugees, stateless persons and migrant workers, and on the enjoyment of economic, social and cultural rights, disaggregated by ethnic origin and by national origin, in order to provide the Committee with an empirical basis for evaluating the equal enjoyment of rights under the Convention.

22. In the light of its general recommendation No. 30 (2004) on discrimination against non-citizens, especially paragraph 16 on reducing statelessness, in particular statelessness among children, the Committee recommends that the State party expeditiously bring its legislation into line with the Convention by amending its Citizenship Act to eliminate provisions that discriminate against foreign nationals married to Bahraini women and against the children of Bahraini women married to foreign nationals, and add provisions allowing Bahraini women to transmit their nationality to their foreign-national spouses and to their children from birth, on an equal footing with men. The Committee also recommends that the State party ensure that particular groups of non-citizens are not discriminated against with regard to access to citizenship compared to others.

24. The Committee recommends that the State party revise the Citizenship Act, including its provisions on deprivation of nationality, to ensure that its application does not result in statelessness and that the Government cannot revoke the citizenship rights of persons exercising their fundamental rights, including the rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association, with a view to preventing statelessness, and consider ratifying the Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness. The Committee also recommends that the State party find a durable solution to the problems faced by Bidoon, including by considering naturalizing all those who have lived in Bahrain for long periods and have a genuine and effective link to the country. The Committee further recommends that the State party put into place immediate administrative procedures to allow all stateless persons, including Bidoon, to have effective access to basic human rights and to obtain official documents, including birth registration documents.

Ratification of other treaties

35. Bearing in mind the indivisibility of all human rights, the Committee encourages the State party to consider ratifying those international human rights treaties that it has not yet ratified, in particular treaties with provisions that have direct relevance to communities that may be subjected to racial discrimination, including (...) the Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.

Paragraphs of particular importance

44. The Committee wishes to draw the attention of the State party to the particular importance of the recommendations contained in paragraphs 10 (legal framework for combating racial discrimination), 12 (special measures), 18 (racist hate speech and hate crimes), 20 (civil society organizations) and 24 (statelessness) above and requests the State party to provide detailed information in its next periodic report on the concrete measures taken to implement those recommendations.
