Lesotho is a landlocked enclave entirely surrounded by its neighbour, South Africa. A semi-self governing territory under the British Empire, post-independence saw decades of political instability and successive coups, with a measure of stability for the constitutional monarchy only emerging in 2002, when Lesotho held its first ever peaceful elections. While media freedoms are relatively good in Lesotho, persistent human rights issues remain, particularly around gender, child labour and addressing the impact of HIV/AIDS prevalence.
