Alternatives to rural development: organic agriculture and Indigenous communities in Chiapas, Mexico [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Fair Trade has created democratic producer organizations that are able to benefit from the higher returns and more stable prices. However, non-income impacts are at least as important and with more lasting effects. The social empowerment generated and connections to the alternative markets have brought fundamental changes to the traditional social hierarchies. This study presents a geographical analysis of the profound social and economic impacts of Fair Trade markets and organic agriculture in community organizing, empowerment of women, and rural development in Chiapas, Mexico. It also looks at the new initiatives created through the Fair-Trade movement and the challenges that climate change offers.
