Research Handbook on the European Union and International Organizations

Edited by Ramses A. Wessel and Jed Odermatt

Over the years, the European Union has developed relationships with other international institutions, mainly as a result of its increasingly active role as a global actor and the transfer of competences from the Member States to the EU. This book presents a comprehensive and critical assessment of the EU’s engagement with other international institutions, examining both the EU’s representation and cooperation as well as the influence of these bodies on the development of EU law and policy.

Chapter 13: International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

Anna Södersten


The chapter focuses on the relationship between the EU and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It discusses EU competence in the field of nuclear energy and addresses the issue of the EU’s legal status in the IAEA. The EU is not a member of the IAEA, but as the chapter shows, the EU can influence its activities through agreements: agreements to which the IAEA is a party; treaties under the auspices of the IAEA; and IAEA-related treaties that give the IAEA an important role. The chapter also shows that the EU’s participation and cooperation with the IAEA varies depending on policy area.
