SHORT SUMMARY

“This paper makes a comparison between NAPCI and the process of
trilateral cooperation between China, Japan and Korea. It is argued here that in order to
build a norm-based East Asian regime, cooperation between
South Korea and Japan is indispensable. Simultaneously, it
is essential to demonstrate to China that such rules-based
systems can be effective for managing security in the region.
As the EU has been a relevant model for the NAPCI initiative,
there are implications for South Korea-EU relations, including
their cooperation in non-traditional security issues.”
