Applications for 2024 are now open!
Do you believe in free markets, smaller government, and individual liberty? Perhaps you’ve studied the works of Freidrich Hayek, Adam Smith, or Jonathan Haidt. If this sounds like you, the CIS has an exciting opportunity for you to meet and network with other like-minded people from Australia and New Zealand.
The Liberty and Society Student Conference is a unique 2-day conference for students interested in exploring important economic, political, and philosophical issues of past and present from a classical liberal and libertarian framework. The conference is now in its 29th year and has supported over 1000 students including the likes of Josh Frydenberg, Kelly O’Dwyer, and Simon Bridges.
This is more than a conference; it’s a chance to challenge and enhance your philosophical foundation with the support of CIS and our distinguished speakers and researchers. Beyond the intellectual engagement, it’s a valuable networking weekend that has fostered a community of long-standing interest in classical liberal ideas. More information on the L&S conference and program can be found here.
Applications close at 5pm Friday, 26 January 2024. There is no participation cost; all meals, accommodation, and sessions are covered. Participating interstate students may wish to apply for reimbursement for flights and transfers to the conference. The conference will run from 6.30 pm on Friday until 3.30 pm on Sunday in March 2024.
