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).
