This chapter considers how states should shape trade policy. It surveys recent arguments in the trade justice literature on what moral principles are pertinent to trade, then considers how these principles should bear on policy formulation. It defends policy-integrationism – the view that we should shape trade policy in conjunction with other areas of policy such that they combine to uphold these principles, rather than addressing particular policies to them directly. It develops this case through policy analysis of ‘qualified market access’ arrangements, where wealthy states offer preferential trade terms to developing countries that improve labour or living standards.
