Globalizing Responsibility: The Political Rationalities of Ethical Consumption

By Clive Barnett, Paul Cloke, Nick Clarke and Alice Malpass

Abstract

<i>Globalizing Responsibility: The Political Rationalities of Ethical Consumption</i> presents an innovative reinterpretation of the forces that have shaped the remarkable growth of ethical consumption. *Develops a theoretically informed new approach to shape our understanding of the pragmatic nature of ethical action in consumption processes. *Provides empirical research on everyday consumers, social networks, and campaigns. *Fills a gap in research on the topic with its distinctive focus on fair trade consumption. *Locates ethical consumption within a range of social theoretical debates -on neoliberalism, governmentality, and globalisation. *Challenges the moralism of much of the analysis of ethical consumption, which sees it as a retreat from proper citizenly politics and an expression of individualised consumerism
