The call for application is now open for the TOChina Summer School, a partnership of the Department of Culture, Politics and Society, the University of Torino, and the Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai).

The Summer School will take place in Turin, from June 29 to July 10, 2015. Online applications will be accepted through May 24, 2015. All needed information is extensively available on the event’s dedicated website. The full call for application is available at this link. The leaflet of the event is also available online.
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.
