David Hume Institute

DHI

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The David Hume Institute was established in 1985 by the eminent Sir Alan Peacock supported by Sir Gerald Elliot. Alan identified the need for a Scottish based research institute that would be independent of government funding and unafraid to challenge established thinking. As a result of these founding beliefs, the David Hume Institute is an independent, non-partisan, evidence-based think tank that has been operating at the heart of Scottish policy debate for over 35 years. The David Hume Institute exists firstly to deliver independent, objective and evidence-based research on some of the country’s most pressing challenges, and secondly to provoke thoughtful discussion and reasoned debate.
