Public Procurement Law

Damages as an Effective Remedy

Edited by: François Lichère, Duncan Fairgrieve

Public procurement represents more than 15% of European GDP and is one of the fastest growing sectors of the European economy. Public procurement law is also fast-growing, not least in the area of remedies for breach of procurement rules. The European directive of December 11, 2007 amending Council Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC has reaffirmed the importance of damages as a tool to enforce the proper award of public contracts, but has left the exact architecture of the damages remedy in the hands of the Member States. This book offers an overview of damages liability which is inclusive, coherent, and practical, covering the relevant law and jurisprudence from a number of countries across Europe and further afield. The volume's contributors are high-profile and authoritative commentators on public procurement law, including policy-makers, judges, academics, and practitioners.
