We consider the possibility that dark matter (DM) only interacts with the

Standard Model leptons, but not quarks at tree-level, and analyze the future

lepton collider prospects of such leptophilic DM in the mono-photon and

mono-$Z$ (both leptonic and hadronic) channels. Adopting a model-independent

effective field theory framework, we consider all possible dimension-6

operators of scalar-pseudoscalar (S-P), vector-axialvector (V-A) and

tensor-axialtensor (T-AT) types for a fermionic DM and derive the collider

sensitivities on the effective cut-off scale $Lambda$ as a function of the DM

mass. As a concrete example, we take the beam configurations of the

International Linear Collider with $sqrt s=1$ TeV and 1000 fb$^{-1}$

integrated luminosity, including the effect of beam polarization, and show that

it can probe leptophilic DM at $3sigma$ level up to $Lambda$ values of 4.8

TeV, 6.5 TeV and 5.3 TeV for the S-P, V-A and T-AT type operators respectively.

This is largely complementary to the direct and indirect searches for

leptophilic DM, and can potentially provide the best-ever sensitivity in the

low-mass DM regime.
