About this book

Temporary protection from fairly traded imports under the World Trade Organization (WTO) typically refers to a national government's use of a `safeguard' tariff, quota or tariff rate quota. Safeguard provisions allow a WTO member's national government to investigate whether a domestic industry is injured because of fairly traded, but imported goods; and then impose a temporary unilateral import restriction that would otherwise be in violation of market access commitments. This book presents some of the key theoretical and empirical research articles in the economics, legal and policy literature examining the structure and use of such temporary import protection programmes.
