Bringing together individuals who share a passion for the future of Fair Trade.


Defining the practices delivering for the most vulnerable farmers, artisans and their families.


Independent academic work promoting all voices.


Championing practices and standards that make a difference.


Fair Trade, Ethical Business and Corporate Social Responsibility are the subject of thousands of articles, across many disciplines. The Journal of Fair Trade aims to be the source of leading research on Fair Trade.

The concept of Fair Trade for this Journal includes all efforts to ensure that trade is fair for all, encompassing all types of certification system.

We want to encompass the full range of interests and voices that need to be heard on these issues.

Fair Trade is at a crossroads. In these times of change in the movement, we won't be afraid to be outspoken, as the goal of the Journal is to catalyse significant improvements in the way all types of trade deliver social and environmental justice.
