About EPPPL - European Procurement & Public Private Partnership Law Review

Procurement procedures and Public-Private Partnerships are two major legal and policy instruments regulating the relationship between the public and private sectors in terms of procedural and substantive issues, required for the effective and efficient delivery of public services. Since 2006 the European Procurement and Public Private Partnership Law Review (EPPPL) has been committed to observe and comment on relevant national, EU and international legal and policy developments informing and shaping Public Procurement and PPPs.


Aims & Scope

EPPPL is a blind peer-reviewed international academic journal that publishes original academic articles, research papers and contributions on contemporary legal and policy developments in European Union and International Public Procurement and Public Private Partnerships.

Topics covered by the journal include:

  • national, EU and international Public Procurement and PPP legal reforms;
  • Sustainable, Responsible and Strategic Public Procurement;
  • compliance with EU Public Procurement, Utilities and Concessions Directives;
  • implementation of EU rules in the Member States;
  • detection of fraud, corruption and anti-competitive behaviour;
  • interdisciplinary aspects of Procurement and PPP Law (Brexit, Competition and State aid Law, EU funds management etc.)

All manuscripts will be subject to blind peer-review prior to publication and are required to conform to the author guidelines.

EPPPL’s Target Audience

Since 2006 EPPPL has been growing into the leading platform for academics, policy-makers and practitioners across Europe and beyond to share and sharpen their expertise in Public Procurement and Public Private Partnership law.

EPPPL's Structure

Thanks to EPPPL’s diverse editorial board and country correspondents as well as expert authors handpicked upon the quality of their contributions, the law journal is able to offer insightful legal analysis, concise and informative reports and guidance to finding workable solutions in matters related to Public Procurement and Public-Private Partnerships.
