Working PhD Title: The Decision-Making Mechanism of Anti-dumping and Countervailing Policy Choices 

Research Interests: trade remedy policies; the effect evaluation of trade policy implementation; the decision-making mechanism of anti-dumping and countervailing policies 

Research Project: Anti-dumping and countervailing policies are common trade remedy instruments which enjoy the special political status of being permitted by the WTO. Anti-dumping is more frequently used by WTO members against foreign enterprises' dumping behaviour while countervailing is more political concerned and less used by WTO members against other countries' public policy. However, with the swift shift of the international economy and politics, there has been a proliferation of WTO members launching anti-dumping and countervailing investigations simultaneously against the same set of products from the same country, especially targeting some non-market economies. My research mainly focuses on the decision-making mechanism of anti-dumping and countervailing policy choices, especially concentrating on the simultaneous implementation of anti-dumping and countervailing policies, trying to figure out the key determinants influencing the trend and characteristics of such concurrent investigations among WTO members and put forward the decision-making criteria of anti-dumping and countervailing policy choices. The methodology of my research will be a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis. Through my econometric analysis and in-depth case study, I seek to propose some ideas about how to implement trade remedy policies to restore "a level playing field" without violating the WTO principles.
