(p.144) 6 Trade justice and development: the case of Oxfam
Globalisation and Ideology in Britain

Craig Berry

Manchester University Press

This chapter notes that Oxfam occupies an ostensibly intellectual territory but has been chosen here precisely because it upholds the importance of transnational political action, and because its core campaigning focus is on international trade rules. Related to this, Oxfam appears to maintain a stronger commitment to Kantian or cosmopolitan values than other cases. One of this chapter's main concerns is whether it is possible to support, and provide legitimacy for, the contemporary world trade regime without straying into the intellectual territory of neoliberalism.

Keywords:   transnational political action, international trade rules, Kantian values, cosmopolitan values, neoliberalism
