Envisioning a future EU-Japan Digital Partnership


Thinking about the content and reach of a future EU-Japan Digital Partnership calls for a multi-stakeholder approach, gathering perspectives from government officials, business representatives, and academic experts. This would allow to define practical areas and modalities of digital cooperation, explore multilateral or trilateral cooperation prospects with other like-minded partners, and asses their implications for the EU’s and Japan’s technological development, their weight in the digital economy, and their capacity to frame the global digital governance. It will also help identify the challenges ahead, including how to coordinate technological innovation, the applicability of normative principles to the digital sphere, and the limits of their normative influence.
