Global China: Resistance and Adaptation

Made in China Summer School 2020, Florence 13 – 17 July
We are excited to announce the 2020 Made in China Summer School—’Global China: Resistance and Adaptation’ — which will be held in Florence, Italy, from 13 to 17 July.

The event will bring together scholars from around the world for five days of discussions with trade unionists, international NGO activists, and students. The initiative will also serve to lay the foundations for an international network of concerned scholars and civil society representatives with the aim of fostering international solidarity and knowledge sharing with regard to the social challenges emerging from an increasingly Global China.

For an outline of the event and a list of confirmed speakers, please refer to this webpage.

Up to 20 participants will be admitted and applications can be submitted until 8 March through this online form. No enrolment fee will be required, but participants will have to pay for their own transportation and lodging. We have reserved rooms at the Summer School venue, and will be available to assist with all necessary booking arrangements.

Additionally, scholarships to cover part of the costs for flights and accommodation will be available for selected participants. Preference will be given to applicants from the Global South whose work has a strong focus on Global China and/or environment and labour issues.
