ECIPE is an independent and non-profit policy research think tank dedicated to trade policy and other international economic policy issues of importance to Europe. ECIPE is rooted in the classical tradition of free trade and an open world economic order. Progressive reduction of barriers to the movement of goods, services, capital and people across borders creates prosperity, and improves the conditions for peace, security and individual freedom.
The principle mission of the European Coalition for Economic Growth (ECEG) is to provide a platform for free market thinkers across Europe to synergize their efforts. There are many excellent institutes throughout Europe, and fostering and coordinating the ideas of these like-minded scholars is critical to a continental effort. The ECEG is a central hub which focuses ideas and improves communication between all free market institutes across Europe.
The F.A. v. Hayek Institute was founded in 1993 to commemorate the work of Nobel Laureate Friedrich August von Hayek, and to promote the ideas of the Austrian School of Economics.
