Fairness UK mirrors the continental Fairness Network in its aim to bring together UK academics working on subjects associated with the theme of Fair Trade and Alternative Trade. When this community takes off, we hope that we will link more closely with those on the European continent for even great coordination, information sharing and community building.

If you are either an academic or practitioner working in this area and want to be part of the Fariness Network, please first read the instructions about how to sign up to FairnessUK.doc, and then click on the sign up option on the right hand side of this page.
