As major events such as the US-China trade war and COVID-19 pandemic disrupting global value chains (GVCs) happens, literatures in international trade have devoted increased attention to the economic consequences of trade policy along GVCs. Beyond these major events, many “regular” trade policy measures are used all over the world. Do they affect GVCs? If so, how exactly? This paper aims to provide some answers to these questions by focusing on the use of antidumping (AD) against China, whose role in GVCs has increased dramatically over the past couple of decades and is one of the countries most targeted by AD. Preliminary results indicate that whether AD acts as sand or grease in the wheels that spin GVCs depends on the “level” of analysis and the type of effects that a research is after. Our results also uncover heterogeneous effects, depending on the country imposing AD measures and the type of firm.
