Lindsay Naylor: “Harnessing Multiple Movements: The Intersection of Fair Trade and the Zapatista Movement in Chiapas, Mexico”

This project focuses on the tension between livelihood and sustenance in Southern Mexico through an analysis of fair trade and the Zapatista movement in Chiapas. Ultimately the research will attempt to show how Zapatista communities have harnessed the fair trade marketplace to maintain and further their political agenda, assess who benefits from fair trade production and identify how land use has changed in fair trade producing communities.
