Biography

Nicholas C. Hope, Ph.D. is the Director of the Stanford Center for International Development (SCID). He was previously with the World Bank from 1977 to 2000 in the final position of Director, Office of the Vice President, Europe and Central Asia. He was earlier Country Director for China and Mongolia, and Director of the Resident Staff in Indonesia.

Dr. Hope's current research concerns private enterprise development in China and the progress of reform in China, especially in the financial sector. His teaching interests include the development of Asian economies, the role, effectiveness and governance of international financial institutions, and thesis supervision of students working in those areas.

Dr. Hope is the co-editor with Dennis Tao Yang, and Mu Yang Li of How Far Across the River?: Chinese Policy Reform at the Millennium, published by Stanford University Press in 2003. This book takes its defining theme from Deng Xiao Peng's famous metaphor for gradual reform: "feeling the stones to cross the river," and explores how far China has progressed in "fording the river." He also co-edited with Belton M. Fleisher, Anita Alves Pena, and Dennis Tao Yang Policy Reform and Chinese Markets, published by Edward Elgar in 2008.

In directing SCID's China research program since 1998, Dr. Hope has singly or cooperatively organized more than a dozen conferences on Chinese policy reform at Stanford, and in China and Hong Kong. He has participated in at least twice as many additional China conferences in the past several years, serving as a panelist, moderator, commentator or presenter of a paper. He makes public presentations or gives lectures on Chinese policy issues at least monthly during each year, including presentations in the many executive-training programs run by Stanford schools and departments. He has also arranged numerous public addresses for senior officials and academics from China, as well as speeches by distinguished local China scholars, including in the Huang Lian Memorial lecture series sponsored by SCID. He has introduced a visiting scholar program to benefit officials (four a year) from China's Ministry of Finance. Dr. Hope's responsibilities require considerable involvement in the economies of India and the large countries in Latin America, in many cases with a comparative approach involving China.

Dr. Hope earned his Ph. D. (Economics) from Princeton University, and has an undergraduate degree and a graduate degree from Oxford University, which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar. His first undergraduate degree was from the University of Tasmania. He lectured in economics at Monash University before joining the World Bank. He enjoys golf, jogging, fishing, travel, reading, and education.
