In The Cultural and Political Intersection of Fair Trade and Justice, Stenn uses Amartya Sen's theory of justice and Geert Hofstede's theory of cultural dimensions to answer the question: 'Is Fair Trade fair?' This exciting new volume focuses on a study of the effects of Fair Trade on indigenous women. Their stories are reported by the women themselves, which Stenn uses to develop a deeper understanding of Fair Trade, globalization, culture, and policy in building justice.
