In this fourth part in a series of reports on state aid, Mason focuses on the element of “advantage” in EU state aid law, and she criticizes the European Commission’s doctrinal approach to identifying advantages for state aid purposes. In particular, this article addresses the divergence between the EC’s and OECD’s conceptions of the arm’s-length principle.
