THE DAMAGING LEGACY OF COMMUNISM
Tirana, Albania, April 7-9, 2017
SEPECIAL EVENTS

“Communism must be reckoned in crude mathematic terms the most murderous system ever devised by human intelligence; and yet this is an argument we have to have, generation after generation. Consider this; one third of American millennials believe that more people were murdered by George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin. This is not an argument we can take for granted.”

The Liberty Summit in Europe will be a major convention exploring the damaging legacy of communism. Not only will it discuss the ill effects of the tyranny itself, but also the way it vitiated civil society making reconstruction almost impossible in the early years after democracy.

During the three-day Summit, we will host centre-right and libertarian think tanks from across the Balkans and Central & Eastern Europe and immersive fringe events.

THINK TANK CENTRAL

Participating think tanks have dedicated their work in the areas of property rights, individual freedom, free trade and the rule of law as solutions to the challenges post-communist societies face. With a dedicated exhibition space at The Liberty Summit in Europe, Think Tank Central will serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas, a forum for discussion between participants, supporters and friends, as well as a networking space for our guest think tanks to promote their work with potential institutional and corporate donors.

FRINGE EVENTS

At the Liberty Summit in Europe we will host a series of fringe events and special activities. Fringe events will be an excellent opportunity for small group of guests to take part in roundtable discussions, book presentations, or meet and discuss with our Keynote speakers, guests of honour and panellists. These events are held at the Summit’s Venue and are only for our Summit’s delegates with an accredited delegate pass (reserved for max 15 people each).
