Anti-dumping Protection in a Liberalising Country: Mexico's Anti-dumping Policy and Practice


  • Gunnar Niels
  • Adriaan ten Kate


The use of anti-dumping policy has been steadily growing in recent decades, and so has the theoretical and empirical literature on anti-dumping. However, while developing countries as a whole have become at least as active as the 'traditional' anti-dumping regimes (the USA, the EU, Canada and Australia), the literature is almost exclusively concerned with the latter group. This article gives an overview of anti-dumping policy and practice in Mexico, one of the leading 'new' anti-dumping regimes. It assesses how anti-dumping has expanded since the country began liberalising trade in the mid-1980s, and discusses how the policy has been applied in a protectionist way that is not dissimilar to policy practice in the traditional user countries.
