dc.description.abstractThis dissertation considers the relationship between the Euratom Treaty and the two EU Treaties (the TEU and TFEU). It examines the legal implications of the continued separate existence of the Euratom within the EU. The aim is to show that either the Euratom ought to be kept separate from the Union or, logically, brought into the EU framework. The first part of the dissertation considers 'structural’ issues. It examines the links between the treaties and it explores the question of whether the EU and the Euratom belong to the same legal regime or whether they are better conceptualised as separate legal regimes. The second part maps out four broad policy areas that will illuminate the relationship between the EU and the Euratom: (i) nuclear industrial development; (ii) nuclear safety; (iii) radiation protection; and (iv) non-proliferation. Gaps and overlaps are identified and the Euratom’s added value is discussed. The dissertation shows that the Euratom is very close to the EU, although an anomaly. It also demonstrates that the relationship between the Treaties is not always a coherent one. It concludes that given the expansion of the EU competences, there is no longer a need for the Euratom as a separate treaty.en
