The upheaval of the international order as we knew it is pushing the EU and Japan to take on more responsibilities in global issues, including in unsolved affairs such as the denuclearisation and peace process in the Korean peninsula and the South China Sea disputes. Moreover, the EU and Japan stand together also in opposition to China, which constitutes one of the greatest common threats that they have to tackle in their respective regions of influence. This publication presents the papers prepared for an international symposium convened by the Istituto Affari Internazionali in Rome on 13–14 December 2018. The contributions are meant to further stimulate discussion on the future prospect of the EU–Japan cooperation in global and Asian affairs. Revised version of the papers presented at the IAI conference entitled Between “America First” and the “Chinese Dream”. What the EU and Japan Can Do Together, held in Rome on 13-14 December 2018.
