The European Networks Law and Regulation Quarterly (ENLR) is the first pan-European legal journal dedicated to the networks industries. Traditionally organised as State monopolies, most of these sectors have been liberalised either through EU legislation, or upon Member States' own initiatives. The railway, telecommunication, energy, water, and postal sectors have and are still undergoing similar processes of structural transformation. Although they are in different stages of this process, all of these sectors are characterised by similar transitional issues and by comparable levels of interaction between the public and private actors in the management of essential infrastructure and the operation of related services. This as such renders a horizontal and comparative approach most profitable and relevant for all practitioners. The ENLR focuses on competition law, antitrust law and State aid law as well as network regulation. It provides the reader with detailed coverage of all significant legal and policy developments in the network industries across the European Union, in the form of articles, case-law annotations and country reports. Leading authorities from the public and private practice as well as academic experts report, observe, discuss, analyse and criticise legal and policy developments in the EU, its Member States as well as the countries and regions of the world that are engaged in the process of liberalisation.
