State Aid Uncovered, now in its sixth edition, presents analysis of the main
policy and legal developments in the field of State aid in 2019.
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.
Prof. Nicolaides identifies the major State aid judgments and Commission
decisions of the year, as well as new rules and legislation, critically reviewing
their most salient features. Among them are the perennial issues
of the definition of non-economic activities, the evolving concepts of state
resources, advantage and selectivity, and the rules on the (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 and procedures of State
aid, Commission guidelines 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
of the main developments in State aid law and practice and will
gain an insight in how State aid principles can be applied in actual cases.
This volume is supplemented with a full index of CJEU and Commission
