The fast transformations in Chinese economy, society, politics are major topics discussed in our media, academia and by policymakers globally. New methodological perspectives and analytic frameworks can help us exploring the contrasting narratives on contemporary China, seizing the opportunities unfolding in front of us. Un-think and re-think the Chinese way of development during our international Summer School, engage yourself in the charming scenery of an Italian XVI century villa by debating with professors Kerry Brown, Markus Taube, Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Feng Xiaoming and many other outstanding scholars.
There are scholarships available, in particular for participants coming from outside Italy.
