Luca Rubini is a competition and trade lawyer, with a special interest in the regulation of the State intervention in the economy. He is the author of the first theoretical analysis of the definition of subsidy in the WTO and EU. More recently, he has extended his focus from subsidy law and policy to the analysis of the various linkages between energy, trade and climate change, and to an historical analysis of the regulation of subsidies in the 20th and 21st centuries. He has also started projects exploring the competition implications of the digital economy as well as the case for including competition laws in the WTO. Luca has been invited to present in institutional, academic and policy venues, in the UK and abroad, and is cooperating with various academic institutions, NGOs and policy actors.
