Summer University


In July 2020, New Direction will hold it’s inaugural Summer University in Alcalá de Henares.

The 5-day programme will explore the ideas that have liberated society and innovations that have advanced the progress of mankind. 

Over the course of a week, politicians, scholars and business leaders will discuss ideas to promote and defend the principles of individual liberty, free markets, and limited government. From economics to philosophy, politics to society we will explore the issues facing our world and how we can answer them with sound classical liberal ideas.

World leading experts from across multiple academic fields will help us understand how we can have a bigger impact on the advancement of these ideas in the future. 

By the end of the week you’ll have all the tools you need to spread the message of liberty and freedom.

Through its research, it evaluates the effects of economic and social policies, communicates them to the public opinion and proposes alternatives under the postulates of classical liberalism. It also promotes an active civil society as a counterweight against the State. Its main values are the primacy of the person, tolerance, limited and representative Government, rule of law, private property and free market.
