Collective for Democracy in Togo (CDT)
The Collective for Democracy in Togo (CDT) was created in the fall of 1992 shortly after the National Conference in Togo. This conference was organized to establish democratic institutions for the intercessory period with the first democratic elections in the country since 1963, the time of the assassination of the first president of the Republic. The Collective was founded to support civil society seeking democracy during this transitional time.
The Collective has fixed its objectives as the following:
- To inform the Canadian public of the political and social situation in Togo;
- To organize political pressure and uphold the Togolese groups working for democracy;
- To follow the democratic process and the state of human rights in Togo.
