The Concept of State Aid Under EU Law

Chapter 3 gives an overview of the evolution of the Commission’s policy on State aids. The chapter is mainly based on the work of several political scientists that have divided the evolution of this policy into a number of periods. Their work has been complemented with a review of Commission’s documents, such as guidelines, surveys and annual reports and of scholarly commentaries and articles published during the different phases. This chapter shows how hazardous the development of the State aid policy has been. The evolution of the State aid policy is divided into four periods. The first period runs from 1958 to the early 1970s. The second period runs from the early 1970s to the mid 1980s. The third period runs from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s. The fourth period runs from the mid 1990s to the present.
