Seminar on EU state aid regulation
October 16, 10:00 - 11:30
The Research Group for EU/EEA, Competition and Market Law and Bergen Center for Competition Law and Economics (BECCLE) are pleased to invite you to a seminar with Linda Nyberg, from the department of political science at Lund University, Sweden, on EU state aid regulation. The seminar will take place at the 16th of October, from 10:00 to 11:30, in Auditorium 4, Law Building 1, at the University of Bergen.
Ever wondered why policymakers seem so convinced that more competition is the solution to all political and economic problems? Or why “free market” reform tends to end up in new forms of bureaucratic government rather than less? This seminar will try to answer these broader questions by focusing on the ideological basis of EU state aid regulation – a set of rules that prevents governments at all political levels from acting in ways that distorts competition.
Linda Nyberg (phd) has a postdoc position at the department of political science at Lund University, Sweden. Her presentation is a summary of her dissertation Market bureaucracy. Neoliberalism, Competition and State Aid Policy that can be downloaded from this link. Her current research project focus on bureaucratization and better regulation policy.
