Language of Liberty Institute

The Language of Liberty Institute organizes Liberty Camps (aka Liberty English Camps) in developing countries, where we offer a unique combination of:

  • exploration of classical liberal ideas (in philosophy, economics, ethics, entrepreneurship)
  • English conversation practice with native speakers
  • workshops on how to apply these ideas to solving problems in daily life back home

At each Liberty Camp, students expand their knowledge of classical liberal ideas, thinkers, and works. They also participate in discussions, debates, workshops, and presentations on these topics, thereby gaining more opportunities to practice speaking English.

We offer several types of workshops at our Liberty Camps, all emphasizing the application of classical liberal philosophy to solving problems now, in real life, and providing practice in giving a professional, business-like presentation in English to the entire group.

Our “entrepreneurship workshop” guides students to plan a new business, develop budgets and marketing strategies, and figure out how to raise money. Our “vision workshop” focuses on preparing a working blueprint for change in students’ home countries, emphasizing private, voluntary action to solve local problems such as pollution, unemployment, corruption, or poverty. Our “activism workshop” shows students how to apply effectively their desire to effect change through political processes.

Each Liberty Camp attracts 20-40 students, mostly from the local area, plus nearby countries. Our staff (teachers, organizers, and other visitors) typically numbers 6–10. Since our beginning in 2005, hundreds of students from over 15 countries have enjoyed the unique Liberty English Camp experience.

We owe much of our success to the efforts of our local partners, and to the ongoing support of the International Society for Individual Liberty (ISIL).

Mission Statement

To prepare individuals to develop the civil institutions of free societies, whether in emerging democracies, developing countries, or over-regulated and over-governed countries of the West.

What Does “Language of Liberty” Mean?

This term in general refers to the words that have inspired freedom fighters everywhere throughout history. Examples are works by Bastiat, von Mises, Hayek, Jefferson, Friedman, and Rand.

Today, the English language is also the language of liberty: if you know English, you have more opportunities in life, thus more freedom. All our programs are conducted in English.

Igniting Freedom Through Entrepreneurship

You know you love someone when you want for them what they want for themselves. The three little words that really convey this sentiment are not, “I love you,” which can mean all kinds of things to all kinds of people; rather they are, “As you wish.” Love is kind, expansive, proactive, and fundamentally non-constraining.

I recently jumped at the opportunity to attend the back-to-back Liberty English Camps in the Czech Republic and Italy – not as an instructor, but as an American onlooker and quasi-participant. The balance of lectures, leisure, conversation, and sight-seeing was exactly what I was looking for in a vacation, but the package delivered much more […]

To anyone who has not lived in a cage in recent years, it is clear that libertarianism is gathering momentum and becoming more mainstream. Consequently, those of us who care about liberty should expect to get many questions from “outsiders” about what we stand for. Plenty of misconceptions and objections will need to be addressed […]

A Bosnian Spring seemed to be breaking out. For days, people all over the country demonstrated against the government and called on public officials to quit. But then the demonstrations turned dark. Buildings and roads burned. People and police officers were hurt. The archives in Bosnian institutions were in flames. The whole administrative system was […]
