The David Davies Memorial Institute (DDMI) organizes, publicizes, and hosts many events during the year. The Institute seeks to open up spaces for scholars and practitioners to come together to exchange ideas, with a view to promoting dialogue on international problems facing the world.

The DDMI holds conferences, seminars and workshops, special talks and the Annual Lecture series. Events usually take place in Aberystwyth, but some are held elsewhere, such as Cardiff, London and abroad. Associates and Affiliates of the DDMI also organize events in support of their projects.
