The Determinants Influencing Trade Outcomes of WTO Disputes

Alexander Firanchuk

Journal of the New Economic Association, 2017, vol. 34, issue 2, 143-164

Abstract: This author empirically considers how disputes in the WTO affect trade flows of disputed goods from complainant countries to the defendant ones. The empirical analysis based on the 141 trade disputes in the WTO over the 1995-2010 period, shows that complainant's power with respect to its possibility to adopt retaliatory measures is the important determinant of trade flows changings. A complaining country, which is an important market for the defending export, achieves ceteris paribus a better result in terms of import trade flows of disputed goods, if a complaining country wins a dispute.
