The Foundation

The David Hume Institute Foundation – Center for Research in Normative and Institutional Evolution – is a research center and academic think tank that is set to explore different lines of thought in the areas of law, the humanities, and the social sciences, with the aim of understanding the evolution of norms and institutions and make public policy proposals. It carries out its activities under the direction of Dr. Eliana María Santanatoglia, who holds the position of Executive Director. The institution has the advice of an Advisory Board whose members are prominent academics and professionals.

Also professionals and academics sit on The Foundation’s Board of Directors, the body responsible for monitoring compliance with its mission. Founded on August 13, 2010, the Hume Foundation has been able to develop its activities thanks to the permanent contribution of professionals and businessmen. It has its headquarters in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
