Formatted abstract This thesis examines why Australia implements protection policies and how effective these policies are in maintaining or promoting the level of employment. Although the thesis examines the textile, clothing and footwear industries, it does not concern itself with the partial equilibrium effects of a change in the level of protection afforded. A general equilibrium approach is adopted. The general equilibrium model used is the GRANI Model. It is critically assessed before being applied. Because of the structure of the neo-classical model of -international trade it is necessary to explain the theory of free trade and the associated welfare gains before analysing the arguments for and incidence of protection as they apply to the TCF industries. The political motivations for providing protection are briefly examined in an attempt to gauge the effectiveness of the tariff quotas and bounties which are applied to these industries
