Péter Staviczky State aid and Service of General Economic Interest: An overview of EU and national case law


Services of General Economic Interest (SGEI) appears to be a notion that is strongly embedded in the socio-economic environment of the Member States but is also deeply rooted in the European Union law, especially in competition and State aid law. This Journal issue focuses on the latter aspects of SGEIs. This editorial is an attempt at casting light on the most important and sometimes controversial aspects of this notion and its regulation in European State aid law. As with all summaries on general and complex legal concepts, this editorial cannot do more than highlighting the most relevant features of SGEIs, with the caveat that the jurisprudence shapes it continuously, therefore certain theses will likely have to be reviewed as time passes.
