Why did Anti-Dumping Reform Fail?

April 29 2010
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, Brussels
Speakers: Dirk De BièvrenJappe Eckhardt
Time: 13:00

Few trade issues are as politically charged as anti-dumping. A few years ago, the European Commission made an effort to reform Europe’s use of trade defence instrument, but the efforts led to little more than a deeper division between users of anti-dumping and sectors damaged by the same policy.

Why did the reform initiative fail? A new ECIPE paper argues that the high degree of political mobilisation by concentrated producer groups and the weaker mobilisation of importers and retailers constituted the main cause for the failure of the EU anti-dumping reform. At this seminar Dirk De Bièvre and Jappe Eckhardt, authors of the study, will present their analyses of the reform process.
