About the product

Anti-dumping (AD) and countervailing (CV) measures have become popular substitutes for traditional trade barriers, which are gradually being reduced in the course of regional and multilateral trade liberalization. This publication analyzes the distribution, duration and final outcomes of AD and CV investigations. It also takes a look at the WTO agreements noting in its conclusion that many of the negative effects of AD and CV measures are not adequately addressed.
