Discussion from the Euvoluntary trade vs Colonial Expropriation section. Follow the modules through in order till you get there, and then answer this question.
Pick a country that has not been picked already by somebody else that has been subject to non-euvoluntary trade. This can be any country or empire in history to the current day. As a rule of thumb, the people in that country should prefer that the trade did not happen – that they ended up worse off because of the trade but in some way were forced into it.
First reply to the OP with just the name of the country and time period this relates to to secure your choice. When you have gathered information, go back and edit your comment with your answer to the following:
Name of country. Name of trade partner. Time period
What are/were the products traded?
What evidence do you have that the trade was not euvoluntary?
Briefly describe the power imbalance between the countries.
What caused the trade to continue given one side did not truly benefit?
For a historical situation, did this trade situation come to an end, and why?
eg with the example of India and the UK, lasted approximately 200 years, ending with India’s independence after WW2 in 1947, using various methods including civil disobedience and armed resistance.

Products traded varied over the two centuries but included cotton, grains, spices, tea, opium that were exported and an assortment of finished goods that were imported.

Indications that the trade was coerced were the number of famines that occurred causing the death of millions of people based on the enforced export of crops. The presence of the military, and the number of attempts at revolution over the time period. The restrictions on selling crops to other countries through high tariffs, the decline of the manufacturing industries that existed in India before colonization that had existing export markets in other countries.
“India was now converted into a reservoir of cheap raw materials like cotton, tea, indigo, coffee, etc. while British merchants and its industries prospered in this course, India had to suffer losses on ąll açcounts. Indian handicraft industries were ruthlessly killed in this process” (British colonial exploitation of India and globalization, Kundan Kumar Thakur, 2013)
Trade continued due to military coercion combined with the support of friendly local political rulers
Ended due to the growth of the independence movement combined with England’s weakened condition post-war
