June 13, 2021: Invitation: “The Europe-Japan struggle to preserve a rules-based international order”, June 17, 2021

It is our pleasure to bring to your attention an online event in the framework of the EU-Asia Project at the Global Governance Programme on

on Thursday, June 17, 2021 from 8:30-12:00 CEST/15:30-19:00 JST

jointly organized by the EU-Asia Project at the Global Governance Programme, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies; European University Institute; European Japan Advanced Research Network; Free University Berlin (Graduate School of East Asian Studies); Stockholm School of Economics (European Institute of Japanese Studies) and the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB).

Covid-19 and the rise of China are changing the global scene. America is back – as U.S. President Joe Biden has stated – but does this mean that Europe and Japan can now sit back and relax, relying on the U.S. to uphold a fair global order? During the last few years, the EU and Japan have signed new agreements on free trade as well as on strategic and political co-operation. Will these agreements now be shelved? In this online event, major and up-and-coming European and Japanese academic experts in the field will take stock of the situation at present and give their views on the future.

For further information including online registration until Wednesday, June 16, please visit the event’s official website.

With best regards,

Dr. Julia MÜNCH

Secretary General

Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB)
