The Academy of Liberalism is an independent Liberal think tank founded by the members of the Estonian Reform Party in 2006.
It has a 12-person board, including former Ministers, Members of the Parliament and entrepreneurs.
The purpose of the Academy is to promote a Liberal worldview to oppose socialist and anti-liberal ideas in the society.
The Academy of Liberalism is focused on civic education and research projects to promote Liberalism in Estonia and the EU neighbour countries.
The Academy of Liberalism is active across the fields of think-tank work. Among those activities that we pursue are: translations of acknowledged works into Estonian (Editors, Claudia Aebersold Szalay, Gerd Habermann & Gerhard Schwarz, Vabaduse raamat. 111 teost liberaalsest vaimuloost) and publishing books in Estonian (A. Ansip, Pühendumus) and publications on topical issues.
In 2017, one of the liberal landmark books Milton Friedman “Capitalism and freedom” was re-published,which defined aims for market reforms in Estonia 23 years ago.
