    As a new international economic policy, microtrade will face a whole host of issues, including potential legal cultural obstacles. Those legal cultural issues will arise as a result of the different and sometimes conflicting legal cultures of the varied participants within the different fora and communities involved in microtrade from the LDCs to the NGOs to the artisans within the exporting entities. This paper identifies many of the legal cultural issues involved in microtrade, with such identification ideally then permitting the amelioration of the negative impact on microtrade of those legal cultural issues. Many legal cultural issues will be explored, including the legal cultures associated with rural communities, women, international trade law, the microtrade organization, and the legal culture associated with small entities.
