European Network Against Trafficking in Human Beings

LSI history

Information La Strada International

La Strada International is the network of all La Strada members, represented by an international secretariat with the same name. The secretariat, based in Amsterdam, focuses on international networking, lobbying and public relations on behalf of the member organisations, producing common policies and action plans and harmonised lobby and advocacy programmes. The secretariat maintains and expands the relations of the La Strada network with national and international organisations, national governments, European institutions and UN bodies. The secretariat supports capacity building of the members and provides a forum for NGOs on the issue of trafficking. It also houses an international archive and documentation centre and manages the international La Strada website.

All La Strada member organisations are registered as independent non-governmental organisations and work at the grassroots level. They are united in the general assembly of La Strada International, the decision-making organ of the network, which determines strategies and policies and elects the board members. The board supervises the international secretariat.


In 2014, La Strada International receives its main structural financial support from the Sigrid Rausing Trust and, as well as specific project, coordination or research grants from the European Commission.
