The Return of Fair Trade
Wednesday May 30, 2018  6pm - 9pm (3 Hours )
Lecture / Seminar Aged 19+

Presented by Dr. Gavin Fridell

Please join us for an engaging evening with Dr. Gavin Fridell, Canada Research Chair, International Development Studies at St. Mary's University in Halifax as he shares with us thoughts on the Return of Fair Trade.

Starting at 6PM you're invited to a reception featuring local beer and wine as well as fair trade certified wine, and the opportunity to meet Dr. Fridell, review some of his writings and get a book signed.

Beginning with a lecture at 7PM followed by a period of question asking, Dr. Fridell will touch on the history of fair trade and its political roots. Then, drawing on personal experiences in St. Vincent as well as in Canada, Dr. Fridell will reflect on the corporatization of the model - despite the intent of many activists to keep its meaning broader. Finally, a new way forward shall be discussed.
