L’Union européenne et le droit international des subventions

Loïc Wagner

Within the framework of the European policies developed and implemented to achieve the objectives of the European Community/ Union, companies established on European territory are eligible for aid granted by the public authorities. However, in the international legal order, in order to prevent the liberalisation of trade from being hindered by non-tariff barriers, rules applicable to this type of barrier were drawn up in the framework of the Gatt of 1947, then the WTO. These include international law on subsidies. In theory, in application of the obligation to comply with WTO law, enshrined in Article Xvi:4 of the Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organisation, the Community/Union is obliged to bring its aid rules into line with international subsidy law. Insofar as the European authorities are required to ensure the coherence of all their policies and actions, in particular those in support of enterprises, the obligation to comply with international law on subsidies can be balanced against the coherent deepening of European policies. In order to address this issue, this book presents a presentation of the evolution of EU law on state aid and EU funding granted under the Common Agricultural Policy, the Economic and Social Cohesion Policy, the Environment Policy and the Research and Technological Development Policy. The book is aimed at practitioners of EU and/or international trade law and academics.
