Résumé One of the aspects of sustainable trade deals with the perception of resource distribution processes, notably between North and South, and implies the adaptation of consumption and production modes, so as to reach a well-balanced social and economic development. Although fair trade is becoming more and more important indeed, one is forced to note the deficiency of scientific experience in this field: the research work on the subject is often of an applied or even militant kind and has limited theoretical anchors. Yet, theoretical currents that have been developed in the economic and sociological literature may now be applied to fair trade research. - Analyse the fair trade network as a whole, as well as its extension possibilities as a sustainable and responsible production and consumption mode with the prospect of North-South relationships and fairness in the economic process, and as a new ethical consumption mode in the North.#035#- Provide fair trade with a conceptual and theoretical foundation, in all its economic, sociological and marketing aspects.#035#- Come to scientifically based recommendations in the field of fair trade supporting policies.
