The international trading system remains a locus of fierce social conflict. The protesters who besiege gatherings of its managers-most famously on the streets of Seattle at the turn of the millennium-regard it with suspicion and hostility, as a threat to their livelihoods, an enemy of global justice, and their grievances are exploited by populist statesmen peddling their own mercantilist agendas. If we are to support the trading system, we must first assure ourselvesthat it can withstand moral scrutiny. We must ensure that it works for and not against those whom it envelops; that it serves to emancipate, not ensnare.While there is an extensive literature addressing the economic and legal aspects of trade, the ethical questions its raises have escaped close inspection. This book contributes to resetting the balance. It grapples with moral quandaries relating to world politics, globalization, and international commerce, and recognizes that resolving these problems is essential if we are to move toward a world in which trade justice is a reality.

This book represents a significant step forwards in debates on trade justice. Christensen wrestles with tremendously difficult moral questions how should trade be restricted, if ever? how should its proceeds be distributed? - and handles them with impressive clarity and acuity. His (often surprising) conclusions will be of interest to both scholars and policy-makers.
Whilst concerned citizens have campaigned for fair trade, political philosophers have (with some distinguished exceptions) not engaged in ethical analyses of international trade. In this excellent work, James Christensen addresses this lacuna. Trade Justice provides a sophisticated and illuminating normative evaluation of many aspects of international trade. Combining philosophical argument with empirical evidence, Christensen develops a plausible account of whentrade may be permissibly restricted, how the benefits of trade should be distributed, and what role equality should play in accounts of trade justice.
