Japan and EU in Times of Changing Geoeconomics

10. november 2023 kl. 15.00 - 17.00 CET

We hereby have the pleasure of inviting you to attend the fourth lecture in our series on Japan in the current world order taking place in the Spring and Fall of 2023 in cooperation with Copenhagen Business School and Sasakawa Peace Foundation.

This lecture features Professor Patrik Ström, Director of the European Institute of Japanese Studies (EJIS) and Center for Asian Studies (CAS) at Stockholm School of Economics. He will focus on Japan-EU relations in times of changing geoeconomics.

The rules-based world order comprises not only trade and economic relations but also issues concerning security, climate change, digitalization, social development, and, not least, foreign policy and security.

As the third largest economy in the world, Japan will be a strong partner in framing these issues on the global arena. Japan’s stance on international norms and rules is shared with most countries in Europe and builds an important platform for future collaboration. However, in order to strengthen and develop EU-Japan relations, an informed understanding of Japan’s regional and global role and interests is needed.

Patrik Ström holds a PhD in Business Administration from Roskilde University and an Econ Dr. in Economic Geography from the University of Gothenburg. In his research, he has a particular regional emphasis on Japan, South Korea, China, and emerging markets in East Asia and Latin America. Before joining the EIJS, Patrik worked at the Department of Business Administration, University of Gothenburg, and the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) in Uppsala. He has conducted research visits at Nippon Institute of Technology, Keio University, Hokkaido University, Stanford University, and the University of British Columbia.

Ari Kokko, Professor at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business, will serve as discussant and initiate the discussion following Professor Ström’s lecture.

About the series: Funded by The Scandinavia-Japan Sasakawa Foundation and in cooperation with The Department of International Economics, Government and Business on Copenhagen Business School, The Danish Foreign Policy Society is hosting a series of lectures with prominent Japanese scholars in 2023 to provide a deeper understanding of the challenges facing Japan in a changing world order.
