ALF 2014Asia Liberty Forum, 7-9 January 2014

ALF 2014

Last year’s ALF was a tremendous success. Over two hundred participants from all over the world came together to explore ways to tackle some of the most challenging development problems in Asia and spread the message of liberty in this part of the world.

We’re hoping to make this year’s forum bigger and better! There is a great line-up of sessions for participants this year, including:

  • The keynote address by Razeen Sally, renowned economist at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore and Director of the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE). Razeen will draw attention to the historical reasons behind the ‘Asian Miracle’, focusing on the importance of overcoming government repression of the economy to further liberty
  • From Aid to Enterprise which will examine the relationship between growth and enterprise and entrepreneurial solutions to poverty
  • Open Space, one of our most popular sessions from last year, which used Open Space Technology to give participants a format and space to connect, discuss, and network with others at the forum about issues and challenges of interest to them

...and this is just a glimpse of what’s in store! Our spots are filling up very quickly so APPLY NOW for a chance to attend the biggest celebration of liberty in Asia this January.
