In the early days of the financial crisis, the Commission’s review of State aid granted to banks in order to remedy serious threats to a national economy was still in its infancy. However, the length and intensity of the crisis resulted in a tailored-made and detailed ‘Crisis Framework’. This chapter outlines the various measures used by Member States to support their banks facing financial difficulties, e.g., recapitalization, impaired assets measures, guarantees, and liquidity measures. This chapter also describes the applicable texts, the emblematic cases, and the Commission’s assessment of the main legal issues for each type of measure.
