The Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai) is an independent, not-for-profit think tank which conducts research on sectors including the international relations of East Asia, Chinese foreign/domestic policy, and changing world politics. Some of its institutional partners include the Yenching Academy of Peking University and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Each year, T.wai organizes two summer schools – applications are open now.
TOChina Summer School
TOChina Summer School runs for two weeks (June 26th – July 7th, 2017) and is hosted by the University of Turin, Italy. The TOChina Summer School offers its participants the opportunity to receive world-class training on China-specific issues from academics of the caliber of Robert Ross (Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, Harvard), Patricia Thornton (University of Oxford), Douglas Paal (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace), Zha Daojiong (Peking University), Kent Deng (LSE) and Christopher Coker (LSE).
How to apply
China-Mediterranean Business Program
The China-Mediterranean Business Program (CMBP) runs for six weeks (July 13th – August 26th, 2017) and is hosted by Peking University across Beijing, Xi’an, and Shenzhen. By attending an intensive set of crash courses run by faculty from ESCP Europe and PKU, 50 young entrepreneurial talents from Europe and China will acquire the necessary know-how to pursue an effective business career along China’s New Silk Roads.
How to apply
Like for the TOChina Summer School, applications close on May 26th, 2017; prospective applicants from partner institutions are eligible to apply for a Partners’ Scholarship. Introductory videos about the program are available at the website.
