Brexit, Euratom and nuclear proliferationby Anna Södersten

Nuclear Energy Agency

One of the issues absent from the academic (and public) debate on the United Kingdom’s (UK) referendum vote to withdraw from the European Union (EU) (commonly referred to as “Brexit”) is what will happen to the UK’s membership in the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). The Euratom Treaty was signed in Rome in 1957,1 together with the European Economic Community (EEC) Treaty.2 It was concluded for an unlimited period and it establishes a Community that has a separate legal personality from the EU. Thus, the EU and Euratom form two separate, although closely linked entities.
