Anti-dumping is the most important contingent protection measure provided in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)/World Trade Organization (WTO) framework, with countervailing duties and safeguard protection being the other instruments. In line with this, this book investigates the legal and economic issues stemming from the use of anti-dumping law from a developing country perspective. It specifically explores the experience of developing countries vis-à-vis the Anti-dumping Agreement (ADA) of the GATT/WTO. It shows that the influences of anti-dumping actions weigh heavily against the developing countries. The increasing use of the tool against developing countries itself is partly responsible for the increasing use of the tool by them. WTO negotiations on anti-dumping are being undertaken in the Negotiating Group of Rules. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is provided.
