Cape Verde

Located in the Atlantic Ocean, 600km off the Senegalese coast, Cape Verde is an archipelago nation. Since the country first held multiparty elections in 1991, it has transformed into one of the most stable democratic nations in West Africa. However; international human rights mechanisms have highlighted a number of concerns about the State’s human rights record, including physical abuse of children in the home and in schools and the ill-treatment of children by the police.
