This Special Issue of the International Journal of Consumer Studies focuses on ‘political and ethical consumerism around the world’. An increasingly debated consumer issue – both in academia and among various stakeholders – is whether, or how, the market can function in new ways as a political arena, and to what extent consumers can use the market to become (sub)politically active. ‘Political and ethical’ here denotes social, cultural, animal-related and environmental concerns that go beyond the immediate self-interests of the individual consumer or household.
