On the Trade-diversion Eﬀects of Free Trade Agreements
Standard trade theory suggests that Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) could disrupt trade between members and non-members. However, the trade diversion eﬀects of FTAs have not been thoroughly examined empirically. Using a novel empirical approach, we conﬁrm that FTAs that entered into force during the 1990s diverted trade away from non-member countries. Interestingly, we ﬁnd that diversion from internal trade due to FTAs was signiﬁcantly stronger than diversion from external trade.
