The HOPE Center has two major programs: our Visiting Scholars program and our Summer Institute.
Every year, our Visiting Scholars program brings eight to twelve scholars to Duke, usually for a semester or the entire academic year, to do research on their own projects.
The Summer Institute varies in format. Some years it has consisted of an accelerated course on the history of economics. In other years, participants have presented and received feedback on papers they are writing. Please visit the links to the Visiting Scholars program and the Summer Institute for more information.
