Propose a Research Project

You can propose your own regional Case Study for consideration by the  Scientific Steering Committee of IHOPE. Candidate Case Studies and Themes will be evaluated by using the following criteria:


  • Scientific merit
  • Clearly defined theoretical and methodological components that include an empirical approach to applying the project’s findings to the future (e.g., planning, policy, modeling, community outreach).
  • For case studies, a strong regional focus that links many knowledge sources (e.g., academic disciplines, local communities, students)
  • Clear evidence of collaboration beyond a single institution, department, or center (this is meant to ensure that a single research group does not dominate a region; a good collaborative example is the Maya/Yucatan Working Group, which connects several independent, ongoing research projects).
