An island nation of around 10,000 people located in Micronesia, Nauru is the world's smallest republic and second least populated country. Nauru is a parliamentary republic with a president as both head of state and of government, though economic turmoil and frequent votes of no confidence mean that administrations rarely complete their term. In addition to criticism for hosting Australia’s immigrant detention centres, concerns have also been raised that Nauru lacks the capacity to either effectively maintain human rights standards or fully engage with the relevant international mechanisms.
