This paper constitutes the Master’s thesis of Fenia Mylonaki, as the final research attempt during the LL.M of Transnational, Commercial European Law, Mediation, Arbitration and Energy law. The thesis focuses on the comparison of the function of the similar but not identical notions of EU State Aid and WTO subsidies, that along with Countervailing Measures and Ant i - dumping measures have been of outmost significance for the deterrence of distortion of the market or market failure, either in the EU internal market or the markets of the states from the international trade perspective, as regulated by the WTO. These se parate legal orders that have emerged and developed pursue similar but not identical purposes, as it is also reflected in the different substantive and procedural approaches regarding state aid and subsidies , an element that triggers the research interest of any student or scholar interested in the interaction between different legal orders . In this effort to analyse the various and complex issues, I would like to firstly thank Prof. Metaxas for introducing the LL.M class of 2014 - 2015 to the notions of Stat e Aid and Prof. Papadopoulos for analysing and elaborating during the course of European Economic Law I into the necessary EU law background for the comprehension of State Aid law. However, I would like to sincerely thank the supervisor of this thesis, Pro f. Pavlos Masouros, for his advice, support and comments on crucial legal points. (EN)
