Chapter Summary

Consumers international (CI) is an independent non-governmental organization (NGO) whose mission is to build a powerful international consumer movement to help protect and empower consumers everywhere (CI 2006). The organized consumer movement can be traced back to the establishment of the Consumers Union in the United States in 1936. The number of members of CI is unlimited. There are three types of membership namely full, affiliate, and government affiliate. Consumers International consists of the General Assembly, the Council, the Executive, and any working parties or committees as may form time to time be established under the provisions of the articles of association (CI 2003). Membership fees account for approximately 35 percent of Consumers International's income. Consumer markets are evolving rapidly. Market economies have been established in the former socialist republics in Central and Eastern Europe.
