Author's short biography:


Elizabeth A. Bennett is an Assistant Professor of International Affairs at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and a Research Associate at the Center for Fair and Alternative Trade at Colorado State University. Her research centers on issues of inequality in sustainable development, global governance, social enterprise, ethical certifications and civic engagement. Her current agenda examines the factors that facilitate or impede North–South power sharing in voluntary standards-setting organizations and focuses on an in-depth historical study of Fairtrade International. Elizabeth is co-author of The Civic Imagination: Making a Difference in American Political Life, a political ethnography of civic engagement in America (2014). She has also written chapters for edited volumes on social enterprise and fair trade and published in the peer reviewed journals The American Journal of Sociology, Globalizations and The Journal for International Policy Studies. Elizabeth holds a MALD in political economy and international development at The Fletcher School at Tufts University (2008) and an AM and PhD in Political Science from Brown University (2014).
