Stage 3: Discrimination, Stage 4: Dehumanization, Stage 6: Polarization


The Éwé, Togo's largest ethnic group live in the south of Togo and are considered to be "savages" by the second largest ethnic group, the Kabyé people, who have dominated the military and government for decades.  An Éwé president was assassinated in 1963 and, since then, Kabyé officials have held most of the power. In 2005, during a debated election where the former dictator's son, Faure Gnassingbé, was elected, 40,000 citizens fled the country. The Gnassingbé family has held power for over 50 years. Éwé opposition parties advocating reform have opposed Kabyé domination, leading to censorship, hundreds of arrests, torture, and some Éwé deaths.
