Niger - the struggle for transparency (a video)

Source: PWYP International
Date: 21 Nov 2012

From presidential coups to new constitutions, our second documentary on Niger offers a quick snapshot of the political environment Publish What You Pay activists have faced over the past few years. It focusses on how the debate over natural resources has evolved, the treatment of Publish What You Pay activists under President Tandja's autocratic regime and their role in establishing a new level of openness in the country -- notably enshrining natural resource transparency as a key principle in Niger's new constitution. The video also demonstrates a key feature of PWYP as an international solidarity network, which pulls together when the lives of its members are threatened.

It was produced by Fat Rat Films and is in French with English subtitles.
