Made in China Summer School 2017

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce the inaugural Made in China Summer School—’Labour and Rights in an Era of Global Precarity: Views from China’—which will be held on the ancient island of San Servolo, in the Venetian lagoon, from 17 to 21 July, 2017.

This event will bring together prominent scholars from all over the world for a series of presentations and discussions with students, trade unionists, and NGO activists. For an outline of the initiative and a list of confirmed speakers, please refer to this webpage.

Up to 30 participants will be admitted and applications can be submitted until 31 March through this online form.

The Summer School will be provided entirely for free, but participants will have to pay for their own food and accommodation. We have reserved rooms on the island, and will be available to assist with all necessary booking arrangements. Additionally, four scholarships of 500 euros each will be awarded to partially cover accommodation expenses.

If you have further inquiries, please contact us at

We hope you will help us circulate this announcement.

Ivan Franceschini (
