NEWS! is the Network of European World Shops which coordinates the cooperation of the affiliated national associations of World Shops. World Shops are not-for-profit organisations that sell all kinds of Fair Trade products. Their national associations support the World Shops in their selling activities, organisation of campaigns for awareness raising among the public and lobby with policy makers for more favourable trade policies for the producers in the South. The national associations that are members of NEWS! display an enormous variety in levels of professionalisation, organisation and finance. The executive board of NEWS! asked itself if and how some national organisations could learn from the more developed and professional ones. The objective of this research is to develop guidelines for the professionalisation of the national associations of World Shops. The research question therefore is:“How can the national associations of European World Shops reach a higher level of professionalisation?”
