Continuous assessment of course work

The course will not be provided during the year 2014

By providing the legal framework for monitoring the subsidies granted by the EU Member States to their private undertakings, State aid rules aim at ensuring a level playing field among the companies active within the internal market. State aid rules, therefore, complement the EU competition rules included in Art 101 and 102 TFEU. The course analyses the EU State aid rules included in Art 107 and 108 TFEU. In particular, the course discusses the interpretation of the EU Court of Justice (ECJ) in relation to these provisions of the Treaty, as well as the Decisions and the Guidelines adopted by the EU Commission in enforcing EU State aid rules. Finally, the course discusses recent developments in this area, like the enforcement of State aid rules in the context of the financial crisis, and the modernization of State aid procedural rules.

The course is suitable for students interested to deepen their knowledge and understanding of EU law, in a specific policy area like State aid law.
