Abstract
When a company or country exports product to a lower price than the domestic market it is called dumping. The importing country is able to protect the domestic market by imposing anti-dumping duties. If this is done outside the rules the exporting country may file a complaint of anti-dumping to the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) at World Trade Organization (WTO). It is not known why some countries are more frequently involved in anti-dumping cases than others in the DSB. Some argues that the reason for this is that anti-dumping merely constitutes disguised protectionism.

The aim of this paper is, through a bilateral investigation, explore if protectionstic motives influence whether or not an importing country imposes up anti-dumping... (More)

If this is done outside the rules the exporting country may file a complaint of anti-dumping to the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) at World Trade Organization (WTO). It is not known why some countries are more frequently involved in anti-dumping cases than others in the DSB. Some argues that the reason for this is that anti-dumping merely constitutes disguised protectionism.

The aim of this paper is, through a bilateral investigation, explore if protectionstic motives influence whether or not an importing country imposes up anti-dumping duties towards an exporting country. This is done by logit regression where the dependent variable constitutes either the occurrence of anti-dumping or not. This information was retrieved from the Global Anti-Dumping database (GAD) within The World Bank. This study concludes that there are protectionistic reasons for countries to impose anti-dumping duties. The prediction of an importers use of anti-dumping duties is most of all connected to the imported volume. (Less)
