State Aid Uncovered is now in its sixth volume, bringing analysis of the
main developments in the field of State aid in 2018.
The year was rich in case law that expanded our understanding of State
aid, brought fresh insights and also a few surprises, expertly explained here
by Phedon Nicolaides, Professor at the University of Maastricht and College
of Europe in Bruges, as well as Academic Director at Lexxion Training.
Prof. Nicolaides identifies the major State aid judgments and Decisions
of the year, as well as new rules and legislation, critically analysing their
most salient features. Among them are the perennial issue of distinguishing
economic and non-economic activities, public authorities claiming to
be acting as private investors, the evolution of the concept of selectivity, and
(in)compatibility with the internal market.
This book compiles articles originally published weekly on Lexxion’s The articles are edited and conveniently grouped into chapters
covering the main aspects of the concept of State aid such as “Advantage”,
“Tax Measures”, “Services of General Economic Interest”, as well as procedural
issues, new versus existing aid and the role of national courts. Each article
presents the main points of a court ruling or Commission Decision, places
them in the context of similar case law or practice, assesses the underlying
reasoning, and identifies any inconsistencies or contradictions.
The reader will benefit from a comprehensive and easily accessible review
of the main developments in State aid law and practice and will gain
an insight in how State aid principles can be applied in practice. This volume
is enriched by a full index of CJEU and Commission cases.
