LIBERTY SEMINARS ARE...
Liberty Seminars Slovenia is a week-long seminar that actively explores the historical, philosophical and economic foundations of a free society through engaging lectures, small group discussions, movie screenings, participants' debates and participants' presentations. In an intellectually stimulating environment, the participants develop a deeper understanding of today's challenges, while enlightening a range of issues, including the origins, meaning and theories of individual civil and economic liberties; the rule of law and property rights in a free society; and government's powers and its proper limitations. Seminar is mostly attended by graduate and postgraduate students. During the seminar, intellectually curious individuals apply insights to the range of issues, including economic and political institutions, the rule of law, markets and morality, corruption and public sector transparency, and economic development.
