    On what conditions can ?fair trade? contribute to reducing economic inequalities ? Our study addresses this issue by specifying the type of rules related to ?fair trade? since the mid-19th century to work out the ?right? price within a market economy. Our research results in specifying three types of institutional forms of ?fairtrade? (associationist ; intergovernemental ; sectoral), whether i) the rules regarding ?fair trade? primarily exert a pressure on the organisation of the exchange or of the production ; and ii) how the power to specify these rules of ?fair trade? is institutionalized.
