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.
