What is Melin Drafod?

Independence is a question that we are going to face as a nation in the years to come. We are the only think tank looking at the path to, and the policy questions that arise as a result of, independence for Wales.

Our think tank was established in 2021 in order to support, facilitate and be a critical friend to the grassroots independence movement. Melin Drafod is not affiliated to any political party: we work across parties and groups, and focus on giving detailed attention to the questions raised by the rising support for independence.

Our priority is promoting progressive independence, not independence for its own sake. We discuss solutions to the major crises of our age – from climate change and language minoritisation to the scourges of poverty and racism – both here and around the world. 

There is a real need to thoroughly prepare for an independent Wales: the question will face Wales sooner or later, and Melin Drafod is here to prepare the way.
