Policy Forum is where we welcome contributions from outside commentators. Here are a number of articles, papers and speeches by various authors on a range of public policy matters that relate to Scotland, as well as information on related news and events.

We believe in encouraging debate on Scotland’s future. Policy Forum is a platform for ideas that are not generated by Reform Scotland, but might not otherwise be published elsewhere. They add to the debate in the same tradition that inspires us – of a strong, free society where individual responsibility, diversity and prosperity are encouraged within a framework of limited government. The articles here are not attributable to Reform Scotland, and the views of authors are their own.
