About The Regulation of the State in Competitive Markets in the EU

This book looks at the changing role and nature of the regulation of State intervention in the liberalised and privatised markets of the European Union. It examines how the traditional role of the State is now challenged by European Union law, and the implications for traditional public services provided by the State. For the first time in an academic work, the book brings together the interaction of the Internal Market and the Competition rules of the European Union when they are applied to State economic activity. Individual chapters examine specific rules which address squarely the permissible role of State activity in competitive markets, for example an examination of the State aid rules, the rules in Article 86 EC regulating State monopolies and the controversial application of Articles 81 and 82 EC to the State. Other chapters examine the processes of privatisation and liberalisation with case studies on the postal sector, utilities and telecommunications.

“It provides many inspiring ideas, such as on the values which are inherent in a system formed through European law...a very useful introduction into competition law, from an angle different to the traditional perspective.” –  Thomas Biermeyer, Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Volume 16, Number 2
