The Berlin Institute was founded on 29 November 2000 as the Berlin Institute Foundation for World Population and Global Development thanks to initial funding from the Falk and Marlene Reichenbach Foundation. With support from the US William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Institute expanded to a think tank. In 2004, it was renamed as the Berlin Institute for Population and Development. Since its foundation, the Institute has become one of the most important catalysts of debates on demographic change.
