Fair Trade Research Assignment Topics

WFTO values the academic works done in the field of Fair Trade. We have collated these with the intention to provide freely accessible information to everyone who is interested in learning more about Fair Trade and its impact on many different spheres. We use some relevant researches, especially impact studies, to inform us in our policy- and decision-making. However, the results, recommendations and opinions forwarded by authors do not necessarily reflect the official policy and position of the WFTO. We hope that sharing these resources will encourage more academic debates and further investigations on Fair Trade and relevant issues that could potentially result in information beneficial for WFTO, and the Fair Trade movement in general, to help us tackle current challenges and bring Fair Trade as a global solution, now and in the future.

If you know a relevant study not listed here and can be freely shared, please contact us. We’d be happy to add it on the list.
