Negotiations over the rules governing the use of anti-dumping duties are occurring in both the World Trade Organization and the Free Trade of the Americas. However, the goal of the negotiations is unclear as some governments want to restrict the use of anti-dumping while others seek to maintain the ability of national governments to use anti-dumping measures. We hypothesize that members who desire to preserve the use of anti-dumping are active in initiating suits. To explore this hypothesis, we examine the positions taken by major actors in the negotiations, and their anti-dumping profile. The anti-dumping profile includes data on a member's AD actions including investigations and measures, as well as the investigations and measures against the member's exports.
