The Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW) is an Alliance of  more than 100 non-governmental organisations from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Carribean and North America. The GAATW Secretariat is based in Bangkok, Thailand, and co-ordinates the activities of the Alliance, collects and shares information, advocates on behalf of the Alliance at regional and international levels.

Strategic Direction

GAATW's research and advocacy recognises that trafficking is embedded within gendered migration and labour contexts, and women's complex realities. GAATW's diverse membership has stressed that anti-trafficking strategies must respond to local and regional socio-political contexts. As always our work will strive to centre the voices of affected groups and aim to be relevant to the lives of trafficked persons, migrating women workers, sex workers and other marginalised groups. 

ACCOUNTABILITY Advocating for the accountability of anti-trafficking stakeholders in all responses to trafficking to end harms caused by repressive anti-trafficking assumptions, policies and measures.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Increasing and broadening spaces within which trafficked persons and migrant workers can access their rights.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women's power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies' impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants' needs, aspirations and capabilities.
