There are some works whose review can quickly prove frustrating as it cannot restore their richness. The collective work directed by Professor Renders of the Catholic University of Louvain is one of them. Bringing together some twenty contributors, the book covers all aspects of Belgian subsidy law, including the inescapable question of compatibility with European Union state aid law. This dimension is notably strongly present in the first part of the opus, entitled "At the heart of the subsidy", which deals with the definition of the subsidy, its "institutionalisation regime" (who can set up a subsidy mechanism, for whose benefit, how and for what purpose?), the granting procedure and its impact on the beneficiary. The second part explores the "contours of the grant" by looking at the social and fiscal dimension that grants can have, on the one hand, and the administrative, financial and jurisdictional (national and European) controls to which they are necessarily subject, on the other hand. Concluding such a work was not easy. Professor Delpérée set about it by offering an original synthesis of what subsidies could cover as a word, an idea and a legal regime.
