This roundtable, held in partnership with the Japan Economic Foundation, aims to explore the changing economic and political ties between Japan and the European Union. It considers not only formal negotiations between the EU and Japan, but also a number of key sectoral and structural concerns, as well as examining the relationship between transnational, national and local political actors in Europe and Japan.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
