Mauritius tabled its voluntary pledges commitments in support for its candidacy for membership (2009-2012) on 5 March 2009.
Internationally, Mauritius pledged to: engage with and contribute to the work of the Council; help strengthen the Council and its work; cooperate fully with the UPR mechanism and with the Treaty Bodies; and support OHCHR.
Domestically, Mauritius committed to: support international efforts to enhance intercultural dialogue; and strengthen its national human rights framework.
An analysis of steps taken by Mauritius in fulfilment of its international pledges shows that it has a notably low level of participation in Council discussions and debates. Regarding cooperation with Treaty Bodies, Mauritius is Party to most core conventions, but tends to be late with its reporting. Mauritius participated in the UPR at ministerial level and submitted a mid-term report on implementation.
