Call for papers IFOAM - WFTO for Delhi 2017

The 14th WFTO Biennial Conference will be held from 8 to 11 November 2017 in New Delhi, India simultaneously with the 19th Organic World Congress (OWC) 2017 organized by the International Foundation for Organic Agriculture (IFOAM). IFOAM and WFTO are aiming to build synergies between these two events.
The ’Marketing and Quality Assurance Track’" of the OWC will discuss innovative ideas to shorten the value chain, to create systems that build relationships founded upon trust and mutual respect between all actors, to provide effective marketing methods, and to create alliances between organic and Fair Trade organizations. Emerging trends in quality assurance, for instance Participatory Guarantee System (PGS), Fair Trade Guarantee System, and other alternative and integrative systems will be presented. The Track Committee, of which WFTO is a member, calls for papers that are elaborating on these thoughts. There will be 12 sessions over the three days. Each session will have 3-4 oral presentations and 3 poster presentations. The Track Committee will screen received papers and invite selected speakers that are committed to participate in the OWC 2017.

FTIS 2018 : Portsmouth

The FTIS Steering Committee are delighted to announce that the 6th Fair Trade International Symposium will be held in Portsmouth 26-28 June 2018. 

Fair Trade and the SDGs : Investigating the fairness of sustainable development
The aim of the conference is to investigate the ethics and practice of fairness that constitute the processes, goals and indicators of sustainable development.
We encourage researchers and practitioners to use the SDGs, in particular the nine identified below, as a lens to explore and assess Fair Trade’s contribution to date and potential to support a global agenda towards sustainable development.
This list is indicative of some of the topics and questions that we consider will be of interest to Fair Trade scholars and stakeholders – however, we also encourage papers that explore alternative approaches and new perspectives on SDGs beyond those identified here.
