Join us and deepen your understanding of ideas that allow humans to flourish and prosper. The seminars offer interdisciplinary introduction to the tradition of classical liberal thought scholarship. Subjects covered include economics, history, moral, political philosophy and law. The main aim is to approach these fields from a liberal point of view. The seminars are a unique opportunity to boost your understanding of theclassical liberal principles of individual rightsprivate property, and free markets and their applications to today's issues.


Thousands of students have already been involved with the Institute's programs. The participants are junior, senior, or graduate students and recent graduates but they are also young scholars or entrepreneurs. They usually describe it as a week which had a tremendous impact in their intellectual life and which has proved helpful for careers in academia, law, journalism, and other idea-oriented fields. It is also a great experience from a personal point of view, since for a week, students and faculty members, coming from everywhere in the world, get to live together, to speak and to debate. They get to learn from each other and are in contact with different cultures, education and ways of life.


Through the generosity of our partners, IES-Europe is able to offer the seminars for free. Lectures, housing, meals are provided by IES-Europe. Participants only pay for their own travel.
