This collective work directed by Professor Idot, devoted to the control of State aid, is the fourth volume in the series of Grands arrêts du droit de la concurrence.
For the first time in French, a book brings together the contributions of the best specialists in State aid law devoted to the analysis of this subject through detailed commentaries on the most important judgments in this essential branch of European competition law.
The selection of judgments commented on is highly appreciable since it highlights a wide range of decisions of the Court of Justice with, at the same time, the presence of a table of jurisprudence and a precise index which greatly facilitates its use.
The high quality of the contributions is further enhanced by a particularly stimulating and accessible organization of the book, which is structured, like a manual, around the main themes inherent in state aid law.
The first chapter is thus devoted to the substantive rules with the concept of aid and the derogations to the prohibition principle of article 107 TFEU. This chapter thus makes it possible to return to the essential and constitutive rules of this matter.
The second chapter is devoted to the implementation of state aid control, with particular reference to control by the European institutions, the role of national courts and litigation for the recovery of aid. This chapter, by developing points that are still insufficiently emphasized in the manuals, proves to be particularly rich and useful, especially for practitioners of state aid control.
This book is therefore an indispensable reference for those involved in competition law and public business law. While professionals may be the main users of this book, it also appears to be a major reference for researchers in State aid law, given its richness, the relevance of its analyses and its quality.
