Togo (officially the Republic of Togo) lies on the Atlantic Ocean with a coastline only 52 km wide and borders Ghana, Benin and Burkina Faso. Lomé is the capital of Togo, the official language is French. However, the approximately eight million inhabitants also communicate in Ewé, Kabyé, Mina and many other languages.

Togo is one of the poorest countries in the world. About one third of the population cannot read or write. The socio-political situation remains tense despite democratization processes.

Journalists in Togo often work in a climate of intimidation and violence. Although diversity of opinion is generally considered high, many journalists avoid topics such as corruption, the role of the military and national security issues. Togo is ranked 71st out of 180 countries in the 2020 Press Freedom Rankings published by Reporters Without Borders.
