Si loin, si proches : la difficile association entre circuits courts et commerce équitable


  • Ronan Le Velly


Based on the observation of four cases of promotion of local fair trade, the article describes the concrete operations by which the actors involved in fair trade and the actors involved in short food supply chains reflect on the convergence of their approaches and try to achieve joint actions. The article also shows that these associations between fair trade and short food supply chains are difficult to implement because of differences in their respective objectives and the relative autonomy of the social worlds of fair trade and short food supply chains.
