EStAL 2/2020 – EU State Aid in Response to COVID-19

Issue 2/2020 of the European State Aid Law Quarterly (EStAL) is now available.

Beyond the corona pandemic, we feature two articles on the impact of the Micula judgment in post-Brexit UK and on the legal status and effects of the Commission’s State aid guidelines.
