Luc Gyselen (Arnold & Porter) explains Public Service and EU Competition Law.
ABSTRACT: It would seem that the jurisprudence regarding the application of competition law to public services is now settling progressively. This appears from the ruling issued by the ECJ in AG2R Prévoyance regarding the de-monopolisation of public services performing economic activities. A complementary approach is advocated by the Commission in a new Communication detailing the conditions under which financial assistance can be provided for the provision of services of general interest.
