Jena Regional Conference


We once again invite liberty lovers from Germany and beyond to the beautiful Jena. During the socialists rule the city was a center of resistance and home to many dissidents who fought for freedom.

This year’s conference is titled FREIHEIT unternehmen – translating to nothing less than “daring freedom”. We are going to debate whether liberty is a grand scale societal project or always an individual struggle. How a society – especially one heavily relying on taxes and subsidies – can maintain liberty. From where disruption can arise if an entrepreneurial endeavor and risk are seen as vice instead of virtue? These and other important issues will be the topics of our event.

The programme is topped off with practical workshops, roundtable discussions and a seminar where aspiring young researchers can present their work.
