Summary

Fairtrade International Governance

By Elizabeth Bennett

Elizabeth Bennettís chapter ĎFairtrade International Governanceí draws on extensive archival research to examine how Fairtrade International, the Fairtrade certification systemís standards-setting body, balances power between producers and other actors in its highest governance bodies. Bennett argues that Fairtrade Internationalís current governance structure is the most democratic and most inclusive of producers in the labelís history, but that Fairtrade faces serious challenges due to a prolonged period of excluding producers from governance.
