Emblem for the Republic of Maldives - Dr. WaheedThe adoption of the Maldives' first democratic constitution in 2008 marked the end of a four-year process through which the political and human rights landscape of the country was changed beyond all recognition. This process, known as the Reform Agenda was governed by as associated Roadmap which had, as its end point, free and fair multiparty elections in 2008 and 2009.

 

However, despite the Roadmap ending with those historic elections, it is clear that the Maldives' democratic and human rights transition still has a long way to go both in terms of strengthening existing institutions and in terms of completing the secondary legislative framework to implement the rights and principles foreseen in the new Constitution.
