Dimension Humaine

Dimension Humaine is works to sensitise local communities in Togo on their rights and to help foster mutually beneficial relationships between mining companies and their host communities.

Human rights defenders, journalists and trade unionists organising protests as a way of advocating for human rights have often been the subject of police brutality. Interference with the work of journalists, particularly those raising human rights issues, is rampant. Self-censorship remains pervasive; and many are human rights defenders who have had to go into hiding or flee the country fearing retaliation for human rights criticism.
