Harmonization of Trade Remedies

Show Summary Details


This chapter analyzes international harmonization of rules on trade remedies, comprising anti-dumping duties, countervailing duties and safeguards. Originating in domestic law in the US in the late 19th and early 20th century, these rules were subsequently established as international trade rules under the GATT and further elaborated under the WTO. Persistent conflicts between harmonized rules and the domestic laws of some states, notably the US and the so-called “new users”, are analyzed in conjunction with mechanisms for monitoring domestic implementation under the GATT/WTO (dispute settlement mechanisms and committee review).

Keywords: anti-dumping duties; countervailing duties; safeguards; WTO dispute settlement mechanism; Doha Development Agenda
