Engaging Conflict: Prevention, Management and Resolution
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.
The Engaging Conflict Summer School addresses three core questions:
What is conflict?
How does conflict work?
How can we respond to conflict?
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 and normative standings, from non-intervention to conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
Engaging Conflict is a comprehensive learning experience structured around two intensive weeks that combine inputs and lectures by renowned scholars, subject matter experts and practitioners with participatory activities in an informal, yet challenging, environment.
The Engaging Conflict Summer School is organized by T.wai – Torino World Affairs Institute in partnership with the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin.
MA students, PhD candidates, early-career researchers and professionals
The Engaging Conflict Summer School aims at equipping participants with the knowledge, skills and tools to assess the complexity of conflict and post-conflict scenarios, and evaluate the relevance and impact of different policy choices and normative standings.
Participants who successfully complete the Summer School (i.e. attend a minimum of 50 hours of lectures/seminars and achieve at least a “pass” grade in the final assignment) are awarded an official certification jointly released by T.wai and the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Torino. Such certificate will include a full transcript of records and can be used to claim university credits (flexible, according to your own university's ECTS conversion).
EUR 750: The fee is 750€ (VAT included). This amount covers tuition, working materials, access to the library and three social events during the Summer School. If the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible to hold the Summer School in Turin, the event will take place entirely online, and fees will decrease to 350€.
A limited number of scholarships is available for current or recently graduated students who are not residents in Italy. More information available on the Engaging Conflict website
