This paper aims to analyse some of the main economic, legal and institutional factors that will have been relevant in the formulation of the State aid provisions in the Withdrawal Agreement (and the White Paper previously submitted by the UK Government). It compares these provisions with other models, in particular the EEA system (and its variations). In addition, it considers the extent to which the model enshrined in the Withdrawal Agreement will be maintained in any future trade agreement concluded between the EU and the UK.
