Maldives: A seven-point agenda for the Maldives ahead of presidential elections

In this seven-point human rights agenda addressed to the presidential candidates in the Maldives, Amnesty International calls on the candidates to make clear their commitments to protect human rights if elected.

While progress has been made over the course of the past two decades, human rights gains have been slow and uneven.
