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. 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 or normative standings, from non-intervention to conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
Summer schools on conflict and conflict-related issues are mostly concentrated in Northern Europe, while in Italy courses on such topics are meant mainly as professionalizing tools aimed at non-academic audiences. Torino has a long-standing tradition of conflict-related studies, both in its University and in its military institutions, and for this reason it has stepped up to fill up this void.
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.

Note on Coronavirus/Covid-19: The approach followed by the EC Organising Committee is to prioritise and guarantee the safety of all participants and Faculty members. For this reason, the Organising Committee is closely monitoring the situation and will inform candidates and selected participants on any development that could impact the 2020 edition of the Summer School. In the unfortunate event that the Summer School could not take place as planned, participants will have their tuition fee reimbursed in full and would be offered the opportunity to attend the next edition in due course.
