Abstract

"The monograph considers influence over time of Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance in 10 Costa Rican coffee farming communities. In-country perspectives and relevant historic and contemporary literature inform findings. Misaligned intentions to outcomes; different sustainability approaches; and variable influence is observed. There is opportunity to: consider when certifications are most useful; develop locally relevant standards; vertically integrate sourcing chains; consider how complementary mechanisms can be used alongside, or to improve certification approach. Sustainability of coffee as a cash crop, considering influence on biodiversity, and the possible implication of reduced coffee crop density for consumers, the market and farming landscapes, is considered.

Abstract

The role of the unions in the process of German unity has so far received little attention. From the beginning, they were among the forces that helped shape the social and economic transformation of East Germany. In the volume's volume, scientists and formerly active people from East and West - starting from their respective different perspectives - consider the possibilities, successes and limits of trade union politics and trade union action. The focus is on trade union contacts before 1989, the phases of upheaval and unification, the work of the Treuhandanstalt and tariff policy. The effects of the transformation process are also elaborated.
