Welcome to the Global Politics Summer School China!

As new actors rise and the geography of global politics evolves, academic exchange between Europe and other countries on the subject of International Relations is becoming ever more important. The Center for Global Politics (CGP) therefore offers students the opportunity to learn more about global politics and its recent developments by joining the Global Politics Summer School China in Shanghai.With its core objective of presenting and discussing new approaches in global politics, the summer school program goes above and beyond the traditional methods and perspectives usually encompassed in an international relations curriculum. Additionally, state-of-the-art teaching and learning methods, ranging from interactive working groups to simulation games, are employed by the summer school to provide a showcase of German curricula. The program is financed primarily by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Fudan University Graduate School. It also profits from the sponsorship of several private sector companies, including Siemens, Bosch and Rittal. In addition, the program is supported by the German Business delegation and the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation Shanghai. A strong focus on alumni activities contributes to the establishment of a close and sustained alumni community that continues to be active for years after graduation from the summer school. In creating this alumni network, the summer school contributes both to enhancing Chinese-German relations und to establishing close ties between professionals in the two countries.
