An island nation in the South Pacific, Vanuatu covers a volcanic archipelago. Originally part of a joint French and British administered set of islands, Vanuatu achieved independence during a short armed confrontation in 1980 and is now governed by a largely symbolic president and a prime minister who acts as head of government. Conditions in detention, treatment of women, including traditional practices like a bride price, and failure to provide adequate education services are the main concerns facing Vanuatu.
