“...a vitally important book on procurement law.” – Christopher R. Yukins and Lieutenant Colonel Jose A. Cora,
“This outstanding new monograph by Albert Sánchez Graells, a first book by a young academic, provides a fresh perspective [and] remains a powerfully argued piece of scholarship which is certain to influence the academic debates further.” – John Townsend,
Modern Law Review vol 75 issue 4
“Graell's book provides an extensive analysis of the variety of ways that public procurement closely interacts with competition laws and policies.
...Graell's book offers a comprehensive insight into EU public procurement and competition laws and policies...the book is researched, argued and presented to a very high standard.
Throughout the book, Graell's analysis is focused and disciplined; the economic and legal building blocks to his argument are set out meticulously. Thus Graells puts forward an essential and original dimension to the public procurement debate that is simultaneously theoretical and practical.” – Kamala Dawar,
Legal Issues of Economic Integration Volume 38, Issue 4
“...a daring legal policy analysis founded on economic theory and resulting in a number of recommendations for amendment of the public procurement rules/practices.
...the book is very well written and the reference list is impressive (which in itself makes the book worth reading). I warmly recommend every scholar, with some knowledge of economic theory, interested in the fields of competition and public procurement law to indulge in this book: it is a very welcome contribution to the debate on the interaction between public procurement law and competition law.” – Grith Skovgaard Ølykke,
Common Market Law Review 48(6)
“... the question of the relationship between public procurement law and competition law of the European Union is not one to have excessively mobilized researchers and doctrine ... It therefore seems that the work of Mr. Sánchez Graells [...] will help fill a gap...At a time when the Commission is embarking on a process of modernization of the EU policy on public procurement [...] Albert Sánchez Graells' book will help and contribute to this reflection.” – Stéphane Rodrigues,
