In sync with TLWNSI, the Jus Semper Global Alliance advances the establishment of a new truly sustainable economic paradigm where all trade is fair trade including labour.
In this way, this resource addresses the fair-trade movement and its emergence as a possible vehicle to achieve true sustainability. In pursuit of this endeavour, TJSGA performed an assessment of the current state of the fair-trade movement. This study concludes that in order to achieve congruency between the claims made on behalf of fair trade and the quality of the actual sustainability that it generates, the bar must be lift dramatically in order to deliver dignified quality of life standards both for small agricultural producers and labourers who have to deal with global corporations in a very unlevelled-playing field. The study contends that the only way to achieve true sustainability for all stakeholders is to establish a new people and planet-centred paradigm that replaces the current Darwinian market-driven ethos. The study argues that this can be accomplished in the span of one generation (thirty years) if global civil society commits today to this endeavour.
