Abstract: "Protecting consumers from unsafe food, the environment from overexploitation of resources and pollution, and workers and producers from unjust labour and trade relations, are generally considered, in development circles, as objectives worthy of intervention whether through regulation or, increasingly, through the establishment of voluntary standards and codes of conduct. Yet, abstract principles are eventually applied in concrete situations and have a variety of effects on differently endowed countries, groups and individuals. What may seem a good idea to consumer groups or government agencies in a Northern setting, may not turn out to be so advantageous to producers in the South even though the initial stimulus in the North may have been exactly to safeguard these producers."
