15th Japan-EU Conference
On 26 November 2012, the department of Japanese Studies organizes the 15th Japan-EU Conference ‘Japan-EU Cooperation in a Changing World: Approaches to Rules and Standards’ in Brussels at the University Foundation.
The annual Japan-EU Conferences aim to analyze the interaction between Japan and the EU as strategic partners in the wider context of regional dynamics. The conference provides one of the only platforms for policy makers, academics and representatives of business and civil society to exchange views on the current state of affairs of the Japan-EU relationship and formulate ideas and specific suggestions for future policy development. In addition, the conference aims at contributing to policy-making and network-building between actors specialized in the Japan-EU relationship.
The theme selected for the 15th Japan-EU Conference is “Japan-EU Cooperation in a Changing World: Approaches to Rules and Standards”. This conference will tackle specific subjects which are regarded as possible avenues for intensified Japan-EU cooperation: legal issues, economic relations, security cooperation and multilateralism.
This event offers a unique opportunity for debate on both the latest research as well as current policy trends. It brings together academics, experts and policymakers from various parts of the world and proves to be a highly valuable forum to formulate ideas and specific suggestions to fortify the Japan-EU relationship.
