David Hume Institute

DHI

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The David Hume Institute was established in 1985 by Sir Alan Peacock and was 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. The 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. Its mission is to increase understanding of the economy and contribute to a prosperous, sustainable, inclusive and fair Scotland.
