The Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai) and the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin are organising its fifth Summer School «Engaging Conflict», aimed to critically understand conflict and to tackle it as a dynamic reality. The Summer School will take place in Turin, Italy, on July 4-15, 2016.
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, on July 4-15, 2016. 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 tuition fees, accommodation and meals. Participants to the program are selected through an intensive and highly competitive process, strictly based on academic merit, professional achievements and individual potential. The working language of the School is English.
The deadline for online applications is April 22, 2016. All information on admission criteria, fees and scholarships, the application procedure, and the School’s key dates is available online on the School’s website. The School’s official flyer, available for further dissemination of the call, can be downloaded at this address.
