The Journal of Fair Trade will be an invaluable resource for business leaders, charities and academics committed to securing sustainability and fairness in supply chains throughout the world.


The Journal of Fair Trade is a new international journal launched to reclaim the best practices and values that contribute to mutuality and fairness in trade. The journal aims to be a source of the leading research on Fair Trade.


The concept of Fair Trade for this journal includes certification systems and all efforts to ensure that trade is fair for all. The founders of this journal want to encompass the full range of interests and voices that need to be heard on these issues.


The Journal of Fair Trade provides a space for discussion of ever-changing approaches to making the world a more just place through business and trade. Unafraid to be outspoken, the goal of the journal is to catalyse significant improvements in the way all types of trade deliver social and environmental justice.


The Journal of Fair Trade will publish independent academic work, briefings and articles. It will promote new voices and experiences from cooperatives, producer organisations and practitioners, as well as Fair Trade businesses and corporations striving to be responsible global citizens. It aims to provide an independent platform to analyse and share insights on Fair Trade practice and theory.

The Journal of Fair Trade is supported by the Fair Trade Society, a membership organisation that provides a forum and funnel for new work, ideas and lively debate.
