Tamara Stenn’s new book, The Cultural and Political Intersection of Fair Trade and Justice: Managing a Global Industry, will be released October 3 by Palgrave Macmillan. Stenn uses Amartya Sen’s theory of justice and Geert Hofstede’s theory of cultural dimensions to answer the question: “Is Fair Trade fair?” She focuses on a study of the effects of Fair Trade on indigenous women, as reported by the women themselves, which Stenn uses to develop a deeper understanding of Fair Trade, globalization, culture, and policy in building justice.
