Who organises Freedom Week? 


Freedom Week is a joint project of the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Adam Smith Institute. It aims to promote liberal thinking amongst young people who show great potential as future influencers and opinion formers. 

The IEA was founded in 1945 by Sir Anthony Fisher, after a discussion with the legendary economist Friedrich Hayek. The IEA is, in the words of Andrew Marr, "undoubtedly the most influential think tank in modern British history". 

The ASI is Britain's leading neoliberal think tank. It was founded by Madsen Pirie and Eamonn Butler in 1977. It is one of the world's leading think tanks, ranked 2nd in the world among Domestic Economic Policy think tanks by the University of Pennsylvania.
