The EU-Japan Security Dialogue. Invisible but Comprehensive

Olena Mykal

This volume examines the security dialogue between Japan and the European Union since the establishment of the official European Community-Japan cooperation efforts in the late 1950s. Olena Mykal investigates how international events—particularly the terrorist attacks in New York on 9/11 and the EU’s proposal to lift its arms embargo on China—have strengthened the dialogue over the past decade.

Olena Mykal is Deputy Head of Department of Foreign Policy Strategies at the National Institute of Strategic Studies of Ukraine and Assistant Professor of Political Science at the National University of Kyiv Mohyla Academy and Diplomatic Academy of Ukraine.
