Regulating Services in the European Union

Vassilis Hatzopoulos

Oxford University Press

This chapter delves into the legal definition of services under EU law, by examining the core question: ‘What is in a market’? It also looks at how the boundaries between market and non-market activities are drawn within the EU. The chapter is organized as follows. Section A examines the political debate about the contours of the concept of services of general interest, non-economic by nature, and their opposition to services of general economic interest. Section B considers the various techniques followed by the Court in order to accommodate the application of the Treaty rules to certain activities which may not, as a matter of fact, be provided within the market.

Keywords:   EU law, services regulation, market activities, non-market activities, economic interest
