Tokyo-Brussels Partnership

Security, Development and Knowledge-based Society

by Takako Ueta (Volume editor) Éric Remacle (Volume editor)
Edited Collection 315 Pages


The intensification of bilateral relations between the European Union and Japan has been remarkable seventeen years after they adopted the Joint Declaration in 1991. This volume, which is the result of a unique long-term research project carried out by European and Japanese universities, offers a wide range of topical and comparative studies regarding Japan-EU relations and cooperation within the context of global governance. It focuses mainly on two dimensions: on the one hand, the impact of global economic transformations and knowledge society on both actors and their interaction; and on the other hand, the universal and regional security and development challenges.
