GAATW has a simple structure:
GAATW Member Organisations provide input to the strategic agenda of the Alliance. Member Organisations work on trafficking and other related issues within a human rights framework and are associated with GAATW and like-minded networks and organisations. They meet every three years to review and analyze their work and decide on priorities for the next three years.
The Working Groups are temporary units formed by representatives from GAATW’s Member Organisations, International Board and International Secretariat. Working Groups support GAATW by reviewing and strengthening the organisational structure of the Alliance and its membership. The Working Group members are nominated by the International Board or the International Secretariat or any Member Organisation of the Alliance. Currently, there are no working groups.
Associates will function more or less like Working Group Members. Since its inception GAATW has used Working Groups comprising individuals with thematic/technical expertise as temporary units to support the International Secretariat on specific areas of work such as research and advocacy. Associates may be invited to form Working Groups at some point if the need to work together on specific programme areas arises.
GAATW's International Secretariat is based in Bangkok, Thailand. Its core functions are to service and support the members of the Alliance by:
Apivart (Nong) Chaison
Naetima (Mui) Kosolsaksakul
