Governing the Subjects and Spaces of Ethical Consumption

October 2003 - March 2005

This research project, funded under the ESRC/ AHRC Cultures of Consumption programme, examines the pragmatics of getting people to adopt 'ethical' consumption behaviour. Empirical research will examine how the ethical dispositions already implicit in routine consumption become the object of explicit policies and campaigns of ethical consumption; and how the adoption of ethical consumption practices transform the patterns of self-cultivation practised by ordinary people in everyday life.

Principal Investigator: Dr Clive Barnett
