Applications are now welcomed for the «Engaging Conflict» Summer School, organised by the University of Turin and T.Wai. The Summer School will take place in Turin, on July 6-17, 2015. Applications can be sent in starting from March 2, 2015, and several participation scholarships have been made available by the organisers.
The Engaging Conflict Summer School is designed to equip committed students, early-career researchers and professionals with advanced tools to critically understand conflict and tackle it as a dynamic reality. Engaging Conflict’s faculty draws from a unique spectrum of expertise to train a select group of participants in assessing the complexity of conflict and post-conflict scenarios, and evaluating the relevance and impact of different policy choices or normative standings, from non-intervention to conflict prevention.
The programme is structured around two intensive weeks, between July 6-17, 2015. Engaging Conflict activities are not limited to lectures, as workshops, seminars and role-plays complete the schedule. In addition, specifically designed thematic conversations will offer participants the opportunity to interact with scholars and practitioners alike in an informal environment.
Classes are limited to 25 participants, English proficiency is required, and international applications are welcome. Ideal candidates will have a basic understanding of conflict-related issues. In addition, several scholarships are available, covering anything from tuition fees to accommodation and meals. Further information is available on the event’s website. A more extensive call for application is available at this link. The leaflet of the event — for further dissemination — is available at this link.
