Lone No More: the Sociable Ethical Consumer

Based on 6 months ethnographic participant observation and in-depth interviews with a self-defined ethically conscious consumer group in Korea the study reconceptualises ethical consumption and problematises contemporary views of the ethical consumer. Theoretical and methodological implications for the practice of qualitative research in a Korean context are also advanced.
