About EStAL

The European State Aid Law Quarterly (EStAL) was launched in 2002 as the first pan-European journal dedicated solely to State aid law and policy. Over the last 15 years, the journal has been known for closely monitoring the reforms, changes and overall developments in the world of State aid and subsidies in the EU, becoming the primary point of reference for policy-makers, practitioners and academics.

Aims & Scope

EStAL has developed into the most prominent platform to exchange expertise on European State aid law, economics and policy. Our high standards of publication have helped to establish a significant European State aid expert community including academics, policy-makers and practitioners.

EStAL covers all areas pertaining to EU State aid and subsidies, among others:

To guarantee EStAL’s high-quality standards, all submissions are required to conform to our Author Guidelines.

EStAL’s Target Audience

EStAL’s philosophy is to serve as an inclusive forum for dialogue and reflection reserved for all academics, officials from European and national institutions and private practitioners dealing with European State aid law and policy. We apply this philosophy in the composition of the Editorial Board and choice of country correspondents, which is reflected as well in the diversity of contributing authors and EStAL’s readership.

EStAL's Structure

EStAL provides a comprehensive mix of formats that give a 360-view of the EU State aid legal framework. Research articles explore topics in depth, to the highest standard of academic excellence. The country reports in the section ‘News form the Member States’ contain shorter, up-to-date news regarding State aid developments in the EU, the EEA and the EU candidate countries. The case annotations in EStAL are the best way for readers to stay informed on the relevant judgments of the EU and EFTA Courts, as well as on most important European Commission decisions. Book reviews, opinion pieces and event reports complete the journal’s knowledge offer.
