The Hope Institute is an open think tank that suggests practical alternatives for Korean society. The Hope Institute wants to provide specific, practical, and insightful policies that reflect diverse societal need, acting as a driving force in gathering small ideas from civilians in order introduce a better system through changing the old conditions.
