EStAL 3/2021 Out Now

Issue 3/2021 of the European State Aid Law Quarterly (EStAL) is out now! In this edition you can find the top 3 papers in the 2nd EStAL PhD Award in EU State aid law. The jury has shortlisted the best submissions and the winner will be announced soon at Lexxion’s 2021 Autumn Conference on State Aid Law. The top 3 papers deal with: the recovery of unlawful fiscal State aid in Belgium, a Nordic perspective on soft law and their relationship with the block exemptions, and the minimisation of the expected cost of error in State aid enforcement. Beyond the PhD competition, EStAL 3/2021 also features two regular articles on the design of enforcement institutions, inspired on lessons from the UK’s new State aid control regime and a reflection on the limits of ‘proportionate’ discrimination.
