Transitional arrangements will likely be key to leaving Euratom
As debate on the UK government's decision to leave Euratom belatedly gains traction, Open Europe's Aarti Shankar argues that minds should instead focus on the process of our withdrawal.

Euratom, the European Atomic Energy Community, is an international organisation which aims to provide secure access to nuclear material, ensure high safety standards, and prevent the diversion of nuclear material from its intended civil use. It allows for the free movement of skilled nuclear professionals, material, equipment & associated investment capital across the Euratom community.
