“The law is silent with regard to the pluralism and diversity of staff and members. The NHRC reports that its membership and staff, in practice, reflect the ethnic and religious diversity in the country.
Pluralism and diversity facilitate the appreciation of, and capacity to engage on, all human rights issues affecting the society in which an NHRI operates. In addition, it promotes the accessibility of the NHRI for all people in Mauritius. The SCA encourages the NHRC to take steps to ensure pluralism in its composition through the development of binding instruments or guidelines.”
