Trade Policy

Trade Policies, such as Anti-Dumping Policies or the results of the current WTO negotiation are the foundation of the global interaction of firms. Trade policies are the key determinants of the structure and shape of the Global Value Chain and affect every single consumer.

These polices critically determine when and how firms become exporters; if they choose to invest abroad or to outsource part of their production; if they trade directly across borders or if they rely on intermediaries. Within this project we examine both empirically and theoretically a wide range of real world trade policies. How these policies emerge, what their effects are on firms, how they influence industry structures and how they affect national and global welfare.
