Ethique Économique 8 (2) (2011)

Abstract
Fair trade has become an important part of responsible consumption. But how is fair trade more fair than traditionnal trade? And what kind of fairness does it embody? Building on moral philosophy and justice theory of Aristote, Hume and Rawls to analyse fair trade practices as presented in many field studies, it seems that fair trade can’t claim a monopoly over equity as a contrasting distinction.
