Debate
A Proposal for a Way Forward
EU-Japan Cooperation at the Nexus of Security and Development

Date: 13 February 2013
Venue: Delegation of the European Union to Japan
               Europa House

The Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) and the European Japan Advanced Research Network (EJARN) supported by the Delegation of the European Union to Japan organized a debate with
- Alojz Peterle, Member of the European Parliament, Former Prime Minister of Slovenia
- Kuniko Inoguchi, Member of the House of Councillors (LDP)
- Misako Yasui, Member of the House of Councillors (DPJ)
and other distinguished European and Japanese experts.

After EJARN and the KAS realized their shared strong interest in analyzing Japan's role in international politics and security, they, together with several Japanese partners, jointly initiated a project for generating ideas to further Europe-Japan cooperation at the nexus of security and development. Over the last year we held three conferences with various partners, including the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), in Europe and Japan.
The results of the project have now been published and its policy recommendations has been presented.

EJARN Annual Workshop 2011
June 9 - 10
Stockholm School of Economics

The conference “Japan – What’s Next?”, organized by the European Institute of Japanese Studies (EIJS) in cooperation with the European Japan Advanced Research Network (EJARN), was very timely.
It came only two weeks after the 20th EU-Japan Summit in Brussels where the Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan met with both Mr. Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council and Mr. Jose Manuel Barosso, President of the European Commission. At that meeting, new steps for strengthening the EU-Japan Relations were announced.

The summit leaders agreed to start parallel negotiations for:

• A Free Trade Agreement/Economic Partnership Agreement addressing both tariff and non-tariff issues
• A binding agreement, covering political, global and other sectoral cooperation in a comprehensive manner, and underpinned by their shared commitment to fundamental values and principles

These two groundbreaking agreements became the main topics for discussion at our conference.
The first day was dedicated to bringing together business leaders, officials and scholars.
The second day of the conference was more of a traditional academic workshop with in-depth discussion.
