Abstract

This paper is a preliminary draft of a chapter for eventual inclusion in the Handbook of International Economic Law, edited by Andrew T. Guzman and Alan O. Sykes, forthcoming from Edward Elgar Publishing. The chapter is a survey of the law and economics of trade remedy laws, including safeguard actions, antidumping law, and countervailing duty law. It lays out the central legal obligations of the WTO in each subject area, and carefully reviews the pertinent economic commentary, both positive and normative.
