This study examined the relationship between anti-dumping filings and macroeconomic indicators of a targeted country. Focus was placed on trade policy indicators using panel data drawn from 97 countries over the period 1995 to 2005. It was determined that the number of anti-dumping filings decreased with a targeted country’s liberal trading regime success. For (targeted) developed countries, greater overall trade-flow expansions and applied tariff reductions for non-agricultural products had a negative impact on the number of anti-dumping charges. On the contrary, trade policies in (targeted) developing countries were found to have no significant impact on the decision to file anti-dumping lawsuits by filing countries.
