Bangkok, Thailand

Presence in: Thailand
Focus: Criminal Justice, Family, Gender-based violence, Labor & Employment, Livelihoods, Other

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

Member Organisations include migrant rights organisations; anti-trafficking organisations; self-organised groups of migrant workers, domestic workers, survivors of trafficking and sex workers; human rights and women’s rights organisations; and direct service providers.

GAATW sees the phenomenon of human trafficking intrinsically embedded in the context of migration for the purpose of labour.

GAATW therefore promotes and defends the human rights of all migrants and their families against the threat of an increasingly globalised labour market and calls for safety standards for migrant workers in the process of migration and in the formal and informal work sectors – garment and food processing, agriculture and farming, domestic work, sex work – where slavery-like conditions and practices exist.

GAATW is committed to effecting change at the local level through its Members and allies, and internationally through the work of the International Secretariat and GAATW’s special consultative status to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.

As the Access to Justice Programme Officer at the International Secretariat of the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women, I am hoping to learn more about the many organisations working globally towards increased access to justice. My personal focus has been legal aid in the process of migration with particular emphasis on how civil society can encourage and enable women to access their rights.
