Location: GAATW-International Secretariat, Bangkok, Thailand
The Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW) is an Alliance of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) from all regions of the world. GAATW’s International Secretariat (GAATW-IS) is based in Bangkok, Thailand. GAATW’s mission is to ensure that:
- Responses to the challenges faced by women migrant workers are respectful of the agency of women and based on a labour rights approach;
- Understandings of trafficking shift from a crime control framework, to one that acknowledges trafficking as the result of global economic trends, gender inequality and the weakening of labour rights;
- Spaces for intersectional, inter-movement dialogues are built upon a shared feminist, rights-based analysis of labour migration, and the collective power and voice of migrant and trafficked women;
- The social and economic invisibility of women’s work is challenged, and the mobilisation, collective voice, bargaining power, and representation of women migrant and informal sector workers are supported.

GAATW-IS aims to do this by:
- Building, facilitating and maintaining mutual exchanges, communications and learning with and between Alliance members through action-oriented research;
- Collecting, processing, sharing and making easily accessible to members, essential documents on trafficking, as well as generally relevant information, in support of their activities;
- Making local issues internationally visible, and supporting members in their advocacy; facilitating local, regional and international representation of members at relevant fora;
- Developing and making available training modules on trafficking, gender, globalisation and informal economies, rights-based advocacy, as well as on relevant research methodologies to address these issues;
- Facilitating training and capacity building and organising conceptual clarity sessions for Alliance members and partners.
