Economic Partnership Agreements: Safeguards and trade remedies

"Safeguards and trade remedies in the SADC and ESA Economic Partnership Agreements" is a new working paper released by Prof. Gerhard Erasmus. This paper discusses the “Trade Defence Instruments” in the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) currently being negotiated between the European Union, on the one hand, and different configurations of ACP countries on the other. These “instruments” cover remedies against unfair trade practices (anti-dumping and countervailing measures) as well as safeguards. ACP concerns about infant industry protection, food security and agriculture are also on the agenda.
