This book addresses the contentious debate surrounding the future of the European Atomic Energy Community Treaty (Euratom), one of the European Union's founding treaties.
Arguing that it has remained at a `crossroads' since its adoption in 1957, Anna Sodersten explores the issue of whether the treaty should be kept separate from the EU, or be brought within its framework. Sodersten offers one of the first examinations of Euratom from an institutional and structural perspective, and in doing so, investigates the legal implications of its continued separate existence.
Using primary material as key sources for analysis, as well as examining all of the treaty's titles, this book explores the relationship between Euratom and two other core EU treaties, the Treaty on European Union (TEU) and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).
In considering whether it is still relevant that one of the EU's founding treaties is the promotion of nuclear energy, Sodersten concludes that there is no need for the Euratom as a separate treaty. Euratom at the Crossroads will be essential reading for scholars in the fields of EU institutional law and EU energy law.
EU officials and practitioners in the field of energy law, at national legislatures and regulator authorities, will find this indispensable reading.
