The nine papers hold in common an appreciation for the manner in which ethical commodities are rooted in, nurtured, and challenged by the dreams, cares, and workaday lives of commodity-chain participants. The goal for this project is to contribute to debates vis-à-vis the possibilities and limitations of ethical commodities as a vehicle for ethical action. Ethnographies attentive to the nuances of institutional embeddedness and open to the broader implications of ethical consumption are seeked. The interplay of meaning and materiality across dispersed sites of origin, certification and consumption is traced. Political and cultural economy themes such as rents, labor processes, commodity fetichism and governmentality are considered
