Recovery Of State Aid

The Obligations of Member States, National Courts and National Authorities in State Aid Recovery and Recent Developments in the Case-Law of the Court of Justice of the European Union

Lucyne Ghazarian

The recovery of unlawful State aid is a core instrument of the effective enforcement of the standstill obligation and State aid control. The obligations of Member States, national courts and national authorities are broad and have been subject to extensive case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. While the cornerstones of State aid recovery and the obligations of Member States are set, the specifics are still evolving. This essay gives an overview over the status quo under current case-law and focuses on the new developments introduced by selected judgments of the year 2015.
Keywords: The Procedure before National Courts, State Aid Recovery, Recovery Procedure in Member States, Standstill Obligation, Infringement Procedures.
