In June 2020, 70 PhD candidates, graduate students, young scholars and professionals gathered online for the 14th edition of the TOChina Summer School: two high-powered weeks of advanced training in the politics, political economy and foreign policy of contemporary China.
The essence of the program lies in welcoming emerging China hands and China-literate practitioners from all over the world to one of Italy’s most dynamic cities, whilst being exposed to valuable insights and cutting-edge research agendas by some of the world’s most accomplished scholars on contemporary China.
The 15th edition of the School will be held entirely online from Monday June 21 to Friday July 2, 2021.
As ever with TOChina activities, the aim is to work at the intersection between China’s long-term structural transformations in socio-political, economic and cultural terms, and those particularly salient trends that are currently informing international debates on China.
To ensure the pluralism of disciplinary and intellectual perspectives presented throughout the course, TOChina Summer School faculty members are academics and policy experts from a variety of fields, including Economics, Economic History, International Relations, International Political Economy, Political Philosophy and Culture, Political Science, and Sociology.
Activities – including lectures, seminars, round tables, and extensive Q&A sessions – run Monday to Friday, 10.00 am to 5.30 pm CET.
The TOChina Summer School is suitable not only for participants wishing to study the domestic aspects of China’s politics, but also for those who intend to explore the rapidly evolving dynamics of Asian and global geopolitics and economics. For those looking for insights into future career options, the TOChina Summer School offers a unique opportunity to engage in lively debates with senior scholars who are often in charge of PhD programs in their country, and affiliated to a variety of organizations. The informal sessions participants join to acquire greater knowledge of the work of TOChina faculty members are a trademark of TOChina’s hands-on approach to the study of contemporary China.
The School is run by the TOChina Hub – a partnership between the University of Torino, ESCP Business School & the Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai) – which is supported by two of Italy’s largest banking foundations, Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo and Fondazione CRT.
Applications will be evaluated on a first come, first served basis.
