Mediterranean Network Against Trafficking in Women (MNATW)

February 23, 2013 France

The Mediterranean Network Against Trafficking in Women was established and launched in 2010 by CATW, the Forum des Femmes de La Méditerranée, and Femmes Solidaires. The Network includes representation of all 14 countries of the Mediterranean region and was officially launched on November 25th, 2010 in Marseille France on the International Day Against Violence Against Women. Please see the Network’s website for a full list of their most recent accomplishments.


In 2006, CATW set up prevention of trafficking projects in 13 countries in eastern Europe, the Baltics and the Balkans to promote public awareness of trafficking, to prevent sexual exploitation, and to propose legislation against the demand for sexual exploitation that encourages trafficking. Each of these country projects designed programs that included public forums, media presentations, posters, cards, workshops to address these issues. These programs reached thousands during two years.
