EU Regulation and Competition Law in the Transport Sector

with one comment


Last week Oxford University Press released the book EU Regulation and Competition Law in the Transport Sector edited by our friend/colleague/many other things Luis Ortiz Blanco and by Ben van Houtte.

The book is a certainly a must for anyone interested in the transport sector and is the most-comprehensive work to date on this subject. The book covers both the regulatory and the competition (antitrust, merger and State aid) aspects of public intervention in inland, maritime and air transport as well as everything related to transport infrastructures.

The book has been written by a number of experts in the field currently working either for the European Commission (including DG Comp, DG Move and the Legal Service) and in private practice (among them, the book features key contributions from our very good friends Elvira Aliende and Mark English, pictured below with Luis, smiling very naturally at my phone’s camera at a seminar last week ). The full list of authors is available here.


P.S. I was trying to think of some sort of transport-related joke to accompany the post, but I guess I hit a roadblock….
