Dr. Azeem Ibrahim

Born in Glasgow, Dr Ibrahim was named one of the Top Global Thinkers by the LSDP European Social Think Tank and a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.

With a PhD from the University of Cambridge, Dr Ibrahim has advised many world leaders on policy development and has served as an International Security Fellow at Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, a World Fellow at Yale and a Rothermere Fellow at the University of Oxford.

Dr Ibrahim is also an award winning entrepreneur and his many years of experience in business and policy led him to consider the situation of his own home country. He knew that innovative policy solutions were required if Scotland was to remain globally competitive, and he responded to this need by setting up The Scotland Institute think tank.

Views from the board

  • Having heard investors that I know well, actively stepping back from investing in the Scottish economy, I fear for the future and am urging business leaders to share their support for Scotland to remain in the Union of the United Kingdom. It will only be by strength of voice and an evidenced based case that we will be able to defend the will of Scottish businesses of all sizes to remain in the Union.
    — Robert D. Kilgour
  • We must make the compelling case for the unique benefits of being within and trading as part of the Union. Scotland’s genuine majority voice must be heard and the majority do not want another referendum or to divide our Country at a time when we need to pull together!
    — Ivor Tiefenbrun MBE
  • Patriotism is a love for your country and as a proud Scot I have spent my career helping to build economic opportunities and in attracting investment. I am also proud to be British and passionately want the United Kingdom to endure.  To succeed in that aim, we must acknowledge that remaining part of the Union is a key lynchpin in growing Scotland’s wealth.
