Overview
The Constitution of Liberty is a new conference named after Nobel laureate Friedrich August von Hayek's book "The Constitution of Liberty". The book was published in 1960 and, thanks to the support of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, was recently translated into Russian. In his magnum opus, Hayek carefully examines the ideals of classical liberalism and different interpretations of the term freedom. He analyzes the human nature, the morally permissible relationships between negative freedom and public welfare, and the limits of state interference in private and public life.
Following Hayek's work, we will analyze key public institutions in relation to fundamental ethical and economic foundation. We will offer a positive vision of a better society based on the principles of classical liberalism - free market and the rule of law. This year, the Conference coincides with Hayek's 120th birthday and the 45th anniversary of his Nobel prize award.
The Constitution of Liberty is an academic conference designed for an advanced audience familiar with fundamental economic and ethical libertarian ideas. The speakers will provide an in-depth analysis of certain economic, political and philosophical issues in the spirit of the Hayekian paradigm.
