2nd seminar: Freedom and Transition
A week-long seminar, dedicated to the advanced study of liberty in European transition countries.

Join other intellectually curious individuals in applying classical liberal insights to the range of transition issues including:
- economic and political institutions
- informal rules, the rule of law, and growth
- corruption and public sector transparency
- public choice theory
- markets and morality
- crony capitalism
