This 2007-2009 project supported by the French Ile-de-France Region (through the PICRI ‘Partenariat Institutions-Citoyens pour la Recherche et l’Innovation’ program) has brought together researchers and practitioners in the field of fair trade, in particular Plate-Forme pour le Commerce Équitable, Institut d’Études sur le Développement Économique et Social (IEDES) and FairNESS association (to which I contributed).
The main objective has been to promote and develop fair trade in the region through strenghtening the links between practitioners and researchers in the area. Several aspects have been investigated (State of play, policy recommendations, etc.).
Sincere gratitude to the Ile-de-France Region for their support.
