Abstract

We analyse the specificity of fair trade in regard to its ethical and economical roots. In a first part we study the specificity of the fair products consumption. This consumption strongly depends on information available for consumers and on trust in this information, especially concerning consequences of consumers acts on producers living conditions. In a second part we highlight the role of label in the transmission of information. In a third part we confront the actual fair trade development with its ethical roots. Particularly, fair trade is based on relational ethics.
