The thesis is concerned with the problem of dumping and subsidies in international trade and with attempts by the EEC to deal with this problem with legislation. Particular attention is paid to the 1984 EEC Code which builds on previous EEC legislation. By examining the 1984 Code and the changes that are incorporated within it the evolution of Community, antidumping/ anti-subsidies policy and practice is explained. Where appropriate, reference is made to specific cases, in order to illustrate the analysis of the Code and comparative reference is also made to relevant legislation in the United States. As well as providing definitions of dumping and subsidisation and a brief history of individual countries attempts to deal with the problem, the thesis also presents a detailed analysis of EEC activity against dumping and subsidies from 1968 to 1983.The conclusion provides an assessment of the utility of this action and of the new Code together with some suggestions for the improvement of the EEC anti-dumping/antisubsidies legislation
