The study applies the methodology used in Prusa and Teh’s (2010) “Protection Reduction and Diversion: Preferential Trade Agreements and the Incidence of Antidumping Disputes” and extends it to include data from 2003-2010 and to focus on Latin American countries. I use data from the World Bank Temporary Trade Barriers Database.
