“Freedom of association in the Middle East and North Africa: An overview of trends, challenges and good practices” is a public report on the right to freedom of association in the MENA region prepared by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights- Regional Office for the Middle East and North Africa.

The report focuses on the right to freedom of association in the 10 countries the Regional Office serves: Algeria, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Drawing on information emanating from States’ engagement with the United Nations human rights mechanisms, the report identifies challenges, good practices and national updates regarding the right to freedom of association.
