What is Fair Trade? An Interview with Helvetas Vietnam

While working with Helvetas Vietnam, I was interviewed to explain what is Fair Trade. It is important to remember what it is we are working for! Fair Trade is both a global movement for Trade Justice and an ethical business model. 

This interview explores the initial purpose and transformation of the Journey for Fair Trade; how the journey went from research on the perspectives of Fair Trade producers to a Social Action Research project!

In this interview we explore an example of the empowerment of a Rights-Based Approach to Fair Trade as utilized by Reaching Out, Hoi An, Vietnam! We also explore a comparison of Fair Trade in Vietnam with Fair Trade in the United States.
