World Conferences


Liberty International has organized 33 world conferences since 1982, and all but three have been hosted outside the United States.

These have helped inspire the creation and growth of regional networks, plus local organizations and outreach publishing projects in dozens of countries around the world.


 

Past Events


The first world conference of Libertarian International drew 70 participants from Europe, North America, Guatemala, and South Africa.

It was found that the Europeans had connections with liberty organizations in the US, but did not know about each other!

Hubert Jongen of the Dutch Libertarian Center felt that Europe should not wait two years for another conference, and proceeded to organize a big conference in Brussels the following year with 150 attendees.

Almost every year since, we’ve held our conference in a new and interesting part of the world.

This enables our members to connect with local libertarians in other parts of the world and get to see what’s happening there with their own eyes.

The connections that have been formed from these conferences are invaluable. Many have found translators and publishers for their works in new countries, while others have found partners for projects to promote liberty.

TESTIMONIALS FROM PARTICIPANTS

Pedro Urruchurtu Noselli, Venezuela


Attending the Liberty International World Conference has been one of the most incredible experiences I have ever experienced. To share with wonderful liberty champions from all over the world and to have talked about what’s going on in Venezuela in a country like Mongolia, which understands what are the consequences of socialism, is something I will never forget. Thanks for this unique experience!

The biggest stand out of LI world conferences is the diversity of topics it brings to the Libertarian platform. The speaker line up is so well thought of and impactful. I’ve learnt so many different Dynamics of the fight for freedom around the world, thank you LI for such a brilliant conference.

 

María Alejandra Londoño, Colombia

LIWC 2019 in Mongolia was an amazing experience, you just walk in this wonderful libertarian family to learn and grow, to take the experiences and insightful new ideas back home to keep the fight for freedom all around the world.

 

Maria Jose Bernal, Colombia

It was an honor to share thoughts and great ideas with amazing people from all over the world. Thank you for inviting me to speak about dreams and projects for libertarian students in Latin America. This was an enriching and delightful experience for me, in the way that I was able to represent my country, Colombia, as well as my organization, Students For Liberty. I learned from people with different cultures, lenguages, and ways of life, all with a common principle: liberty. Thank you!
