Day 2: Lecture
Title：New horizons in EU–Japan security cooperation
Abstract: Alongside the EU–Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), a Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) between the EU and Japan entered into force in 2019. Whereas the EPA enshrines the existing interconnectedness between the Japanese and European economies, the SPA remains more aspirational. With an emphasis on shared norms and values and recognizing an increasingly hostile external environment, the EU and Japan are seeking to deepen and broaden their security relations. In this article, we map threat perceptions and policy responses across a broad range of security domains to assess the relevance of EU–Japan security cooperation for the period 1990–2017. Cooperation has increased notably in domains such as economic security, cyber-security and civil protection. In other areas, such as military and regional security and terrorism, however, the scope of cooperation lags behind. The SPA not only reflects a renewed interest and level of ambition in the EU and Japan, but also provides them with a platform to extend security cooperation to address their global and regional challenges.
