This chapter discusses the transnational social movements that link the North and South. It looks at the concept of fair trade, which carries many meanings in modern usage. It notes that the Fair Trade Movement has continued to grow rapidly, and that most of the growth in the U.S. and U.K. markets comes from the competitive introduction of Fair Trade products in major chains. Some of these products include Whole Foods Markets, Costco, and Wal-Mart. It also looks at the scale and effects of fair trade, and the evolving struggles within the movement.

Keywords:   transnational social movements, fair trade, Fair Trade Movement, Fair Trade products, Costco
