The inclusion of international peace and security is one of the most notable developments in the new EU-Korea Framework Agreement, in comparison with the 1996 Framework Agreement for Trade and Cooperation. Security cooperation is mentioned frequently in the preamble to the 2010 Framework Agreement and it is addressed in several substantive articles. This chapter asks two questions concerning security cooperation. Firstly, what are the reasons for the extension of EU-Korea cooperation towards security issues? Secondly, what is the potential for further meaningful cooperation in this area? In particular, the chapter explores the treatment in the Framework Agreement of several security issues, including the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, small arms and light weapons, international crimes, and counter-terrorism. As noted by the author, the scope of cooperation envisaged in the Framework Agreement is often vague and subject to future agreement. As a result, the depth of cooperation will ultimately depend on the mutual willingness of the two parties to strengthen their understanding of shared values and common challenges in relation to security threats.
