In 2019 in Nairobi, IWRAW Asia Pacific came together with partners and allies in the labour rights, migrant rights, sex workers’ rights and women’s rights movements to co-create a Manifesto on Feminist Approaches to Counter Trafficking – the FACT Manifesto.

The Manifesto is based upon and builds on the extensive feminist analysis and writing by activists and scholars who have long critiqued the globally dominant narratives on the issue of trafficking in women, recognising that they stem from sexist, racist, heteronormative, patriarchal and neoliberal conceptions of women, labour and migration. This manifesto seeks to challenge these intersecting systems of oppression by setting out a visionary framework for inter-movement solidarity building and law and policy advocacy for the global labour rights, migrant rights, sex workers’ rights and women’s rights movements.

We invite you to express solidarity with this vision by endorsing the FACT Manifesto.

Our thanks go to Lulu Kitololo for its design and illustration, and her graphic reporting at the event, collated here in PDF format as A Visual Journey through Feminist Perspectives on Trafficking.

Also emerging from our Nairobi convening is a short film about the event, as well as a series of video interviews with anti-trafficking activists:
