Musawah Thematic Report on Mauritius (2018)

About This Resource

In October 2018 – Musawah submitted a Thematic report on Mauritius, with substantive inputs from Mauritian family law experts, to the CEDAW Committee for review at its 71st Session. The report examines the lack of a codified legal framework for recognizing and protecting rights in the context of Muslim religious marriages. It also discusses the issues and challenges resulting from the lack of clarity on a legal framework, including marriage registration, polygamy, divorce, survival rights, custody and child marriage. The report was drafted with support from International Human Rights Clinic and Islamic Legal Studies Program: Law and Social Change at Harvard Law School.
