Human Rights in Mauritius

Over the years, Mauritius has had many initiatives to promote and enforce human rights. However, human rights issues persist, suggesting that more effort is needed. This article explains the situation of human rights in Mauritius.

Mauritius has the necessary national and international legislative structure to protect human rights since it has ratified most of the United Nations’ treaties and conventions. Ratifying treaties and conventions represent a big step for a country, showing its support and willingness to promote human rights within its territory because of the legal obligation it implies. Examples of core conventions that Mauritius ratified are the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination and others. All this is to say that Mauritius has never failed to show its interest in human rights and the well-being of its population. Of course, some acts passed in parliament also help to enforce human rights.
