Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW) Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“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 sectors – garment and food processing, agriculture and farming, domestic work, sex work -- where slavery-like conditions and practices exist.”
