Mauritius ratifies Arms Trade Treaty and Convention on Cluster Munitions

Mauritius ratified the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) in 2015. While the country is unlikely to experience the consequences of armed conflict, Mauritius has displayed its support for international humanitarian law (IHL) by ratifying this IHL instrument. Devendre Gopaul, chairperson of the Mauritius National IHL Committee, explains why Mauritius is so advanced in the IHL process.
