The Impact of Fair Trade
edited by Ruerd Ruben

The Impact of Fair Trade provides the first balanced in-depth analysis of the real welfare impact of Fair Trade, paying attention to key dimensions of income, consumption, wealth, environment, empowerment and gender.

The core articles are based on extensive field surveys in Peru, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ghana, Kenya and Mexico, and provide valuable insights in the contributions and constraints for producers' involvement in Fair Trade.

In addition, attention is paid to the broader implications for international trade regimes and the ethical perspectives on Fair Trade.
