Abstract:

Mauritius is a tiny island of 1,865 km2 situated in the Indian Ocean off the south east coast of the African continent. It was uninhabited when the Portuguese discovered it at the beginning of the 16th century. It was first settled by the Dutch in 1598, followed by the French in 1715 and by the British in 1810. The British were in control until 1968, when the country gained independence. Mauritius became a Republic in 1992 and forms part of the British Commonwealth.
