International competition law series ; v. 74.
"[This book] focuses on the complex rules of EU State Aid control in the infrastructure sector and how they have been interpreted in the European Commission's decisional practice and by the EU courts. The elements of infrastructure -- roads, transportation, electricity, water, communications, schools, hospitals -- are so ingrained in the fabric of daily life that few people give a second thought to who provides them, and how. Yet, they are controlled by an extensive and complex regulatory system. Moreover, the EU's State aid modernization plan has made infrastructure a crucial aspect of competition law. How did EU State aid law turn into regulation on whether a city can build a new airport, or how it may operate a school? And what do the rules actually mean for infrastructure funding? These are the questions this book, the first comprehensive guide to EU State aid law in this key sector and a major contribution to the debate on the topic, seeks to answer.
