TOChina Summer School – University of Torino

The TOChina Summer School, a partnership of the Department of Culture, Politics and Society, University of Torino, and the Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai), has been running with the support of Fondazione CRT since 2007 to help outstanding students, young scholars and engaged professionals reflect on the complexity of China’s development and return to global prominence from a plurality of perspectives.

In 2016 the School is proud to acknowledge the Australian Center on China in the World (CIW), the University of Naples “L’Orientale” and the Department of Political Science of the University of Rome
“Roma Tre” as associate partners.

Based at the “Luigi Einaudi” campus of the University of Torino, the Summer School welcomes participants to a vibrant international environment, where an informal work style allows for free, in-depth discussion on critical issues that lie at the intersection between China’s long-term structural transformations and global current affairs.

Confirmed faculty members for the 2016 TOChina Summer School are:

Daniele Brigadoi Cologna, Università degli Studi dell’Insubria
Chen Zhimin, Fudan University
Kent Deng, London School of Economics and Political Science
Ben Hilmann, Australian National University
Jean François Huchet, INALCO
Jia Qingguo, Peking University
Kairat Kelimbetov, Governor of the International Finance Center Astana
Sarah Kirchberger, University of Hamburg
Niu Xinchun, China Institutes for Contemporary International Relations
Francesco Sisci, Renmin University
Patricia Thornton, Oxford University
Luigi Tomba, Australian National University

Online applications are accepted from March 21th through to May 29th 2016.
