Abstract: Abstract This study investigates the effects of globalization—specifically, a reduction in trade costs—on trade policies implemented under unilateral and cooperative policy regimes. The results demonstrate opposite responses to the advancement of globalization under the two regimes: (i) the unilateral policy regime induces governments to raise tariff rates with the progress of globalization, while (ii) the cooperative policy regime allows governments to reduce tariffs.
