Human security was adopted by Japan as a main goal of foreign and defence policy. Japan’s efforts to put human security on the agenda, especially at the UN, led to discussion and adoption in the communiqués within EU-Japan summit meetings. The apex of the concept in Japanese policy may have passed, becoming a subject of development cooperation policy rather than a fundamental guiding principle of Japanese foreign policy.
