Cook Islands [New Zealand]

The Cook Islands lie in the South Pacific Ocean, between French Polynesia and American Samoa. Formerly a British protectorate, the territory is now a self governing State in free association with New Zealand. Though not a full member of the United Nations, the Cook Islands ratifies human rights treaties in its own name and has been criticised by treaty bodies for failing to address violence against children and sexual abuse.
