Does antidumping use contribute to trade liberalization in developing countries?

Michael Moore and Maurizio Zanardi ()

Canadian Journal of Economics, 2009, vol. 42, issue 2, 469-495

Abstract: Some supporters of antidumping have argued that this procedure serves as a kind of `safety valve' for protectionist pressure. In this paper, we investigate whether there is empirical evidence that the use of antidumping actions has contributed to ongoing tariff reductions over the period 1988 to 2004 in a sample of 23 developing countries, some of which have become aggressive users of antidumping in recent years. The evidence is not supportive of the safety valve argument for these countries. Instead, evidence suggests that past use of antidumping may have led to less rather than more trade liberalization.
