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. This comparative study of Fair Trade and its effect on Bolivia's Andean women, working independently in handicrafts and collaboratively in agriculture, analyzes how Fair Trade has grown to become a multi-billion dollar, global industry. Stenn's 15 years of working with indigenous Andean women makes this in invaluable source for the study of Fair Trade and for Bolivia's population.
