The Movement

Who are we?

Tournons La Page (TLP) is an international citizens' movement - bringing together nearly 250 organizations in fourteen countries (Benin, Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Guinea, Malawi, Mali, Niger, Uganda, DRC, Togo) - which leads and relays peaceful, non-partisan actions to promote democratic alternation in Africa.

In France, the International Secretariat based in Paris supports coalitions: training, network management and animation, lobbying and advocacy, media presence, protection of activists.

On October 15, 2014, two weeks before the fall of Blaise Compaoré in Burkina Faso, we launched an appeal entitled "In Africa as elsewhere, no democracy without alternation" signed by 550 organizations and personalities from Africa and Europe.

Tournons La Page (TLP) is today the international reference network on the issue of democratic processes in Africa.

Our mission:

To encourage and strengthen citizen action in favor of sustainable democratic processes.

Our values:

  • Solidarity and collegiality: "we are stronger together".
  • Non-violence
  • Respect for human rights
  • The universal nature of democracy
  • National and international solidarity
  • Independence from political parties

Become a member

To become a member of Tournons La Page, you must be either an organization or an individual, join one of the fifteen existing national coalitions or create one in the country to which you belong, if no coalition exists.

Members are integrated into the governance of their coalition, participate in defining TLP's positions and have access to all services (communication support, relays, networking, technical and political support, protection in case of threat...).

Membership Criteria

  • Be involved in one or more areas related to the promotion of democracy (good governance, citizenship education, advocacy, human rights defense, social rights promotion, fight against corruption...);
  • Have an associative/strategic project or a personal commitment in line with TLP's visions, missions, values and principles;
  • Adhere to the TLP Charter.

Create a new coalition 

To create a coalition, interested organizations or individuals must meet and share their motivations for joining TLP.

Candidates must then send a formal request by e-mail to contact@tournonslapage.org, attaching the adhesion form completed by each organization wishing to join the coalition.

If the application is approved by the Board of Directors, applicants will be asked to set up a provisional office to handle day-to-day business and act as an intermediary between the International Secretariat and the new coalition. They will therefore choose a coordinator and a secretary, as well as a communication officer. TLP insists on parity in leadership positions within coalitions.

This office will function for a six-month at least in which, in collaboration with the International Secretariat, it will elaborate its organic texts (statutes, internal regulations, procedures manual, organization chart, etc.).

At the end of this probationary period, the president of TLP International will officially install the new coordination team, following the Board of Director's approval.

Tournons La Page (TLP) is therefore an international citizen movement that today brings together 250 civil society organisations in Africa and Europe, gathered in 15 collectives (called coalitions).

Each coalition has its autonomy in the implementation of its actions and in the definition of its strategy. They are led by coordinators, elected for a 3-year term, renewable once.

At the international level, every three years the International General Assembly (GA) is held, bringing together two representatives per coalition and invited personalities or partners. It is the sovereign body of TLP at the international level and it elects the members of the International steering committee and, among them, the members of the Board.

COPIL is composed of one representative per country and at least three qualified personalities. Its role is to define the orientations of the movement as the guarantor of the vision, values, principles and objectives of the movement.

The Bureau, the executive body of Tournons La Page (TLP), is composed of a President, a Vice-President and a Treasurer.

The movement and its governing bodies are supported in their mission by the International Secretariat, whose role is to animate and represent the movement, protect members and support national coalitions in their activities.
