Jean Marc Bikoko

HRD, Executive President
Centrale Syndicale du Secteur Public - CSP
Front Line Defenders Award Finalist

Jean Marc Bikoko is the executive president of the Centrale Syndicale du Secteur Public - CSP (Central Trade Union of the Public Sector). For several years he has worked to defend human rights and represent the social interests of public sector workers in Cameroon.

He is also a focal point at national level for Dynamique Citoyenne (Dynamic Citizen), a network of Cameroonian civil society organisations which is made up of more than 150 other groups, including religious congregations, trade unions, associations and non-governmental organisations that conduct independent monitoring of public policies and cooperation and advocacy strategies.


In Cameroon, human rights defenders and journalists critical of the government are particularly targeted and often face harassment. HRDs working on minority and land issues as well as those working on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexed (LGBTI) rights are particularly vulnerable.
