    Brief Description:

    The climate change and COVID-19 crises show us that conventional global value chains have negative impacts on people and planet and that excessive reliance on global value chains can be a risk. Calls are being made to switch to a local economy. Yet, what would a total localisation of trade mean in terms of global social justice? Should short supply chains be measured in terms of distance? what about Fair Trade initiatives, South-North, but also North-North or South-South? How can we ensure that the ecological transition does not come at the expense of international solidarity and equity?
