Euratom at the Crossroads

Anna Södersten

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 Södersten explores the issue of whether the treaty should be kept separate from the EU, or be brought within its framework.

Chapter 5: Nuclear industrial development: the ‘dirigiste’ organisation

Anna Södersten


Chapter 5 focuses on the Euratom’s main task – nuclear industrial development. It asks what is the relevance of the Euratom’s central objective today. It shows that policy areas that could be regarded as ‘dirigiste’ are only applied in a limited fashion. Today, many of the provisions on nuclear industrial development are of only minor significance. The Euratom does not offer any added value as a separate Treaty, but is merely supplemental to the EU.
