Stimulating and
influencing thinking

in key public policy areas

    The Institute is continually looking at ways to develop its research activities.

    Access our papers

    We continue to extend our diverse and relevant series of published papers which document our seminars and research. The Occasional Paper series are intended to make our work available to a wide audience. Hard copies of earlier papers are available (with some exceptions) and papers are available to download as PDF files.

    The DHI runs a Winter, Spring and Autumn series of seminars each year which are open to all. We attract a high quality audience spanning academia, business and policy-making. Each seminar includes a full, accessible presentation by an acknowledged expert, followed by a lengthy Q&A session to stimulate debate. The events are followed by an informal reception so that the debate can continue and we see this as an important element of our events.

    We have gained a reputation for excellence for the calibre of speakers we attract and the accessibility, diversity and relevance of the topics covered. We also organise an annual Hume Lecture (every third year we hold a Presidential Address), with an eminent speaker on a current issue but with particular reference to Hume’s work.
