Event description

Description

Welcome to an evening exploring different standpoints on fair trade.

We will be looking at whether fair trade is an effective contribution to global justice?
We will also discuss how organisations promote and portray fair trade in the UK.

First talk
Dr Nigel Dower
“What makes Fair Trade Fair”
This talk seeks to show that, although benevolence often underlies motivation for fair trade, a more adequate motivational basis involves theories of global justice and attempts to reduce an individual's dependence on systems of injustice.

Second talk
Rosario Alurralde & Hannes Sundkvist
“The image of Fair Trade and the challenges on each side of the supply chain.”
What message comes across when we discuss fair trade? This talk will examine the challenges on each side of the supply chain, including the possible contra
diction of some NGOs advocating for fair trade while other NGOs deliver aid projects.

Refreshments will be served, fairly traded of course.
