Watson, Alison M. S. (1995) "The European Union and Japan: Problems and Prospects". In: UNSPECIFIED, Charleston, South Carolina. (Unpublished)
This paper analyzes the relationship between the European Union and Japan in the light of their Joint Declaration in 1991. This Declaration was important in that it explicitly intriduced a political dimension to their relationship. The paper is divided into five sections. Beginning with a brief review of the historical background to the relationship in the post-World War II period, the paper then proceeds to examine the Joint Declaration's political objectives with reference to events in the international system which contributed to its adoption. The third section examines the chances of achieving these objectives by analysing the difficulties which currently exist within the European Union and Japan relationship before going on to assess the future prospects in the light of these issues. Section fives concludes.
