The University of Torino has developed the TOChina Hub in cooperation with ESCP Europe (Torino campus) and the Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai) to promote an innovative model of academic cooperation with select Chinese partners. 

The core mission of the TOChina Hub is to promote a holistic understanding of contemporary China’s political-institutional and socio-economic change through area studies-inflected research in the social sciences.


Researchers affiliated to the TOChina Hub pursue rigorous, in-depth research based on international and Chinese sources, intensive fieldwork and surveys with senior local partners. Particular attention is devoted to Italy-China relations, and to China’s evolving role in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
