Register now at www.isflc.org/register to catch these and all of our great speakers at the 10th Annual International Students For Liberty Conference!

The 2017 International Students For Liberty Conference is really coming together as we head into the new year!

We’ve been announcing speakers left and right, and have a lot more coming up in the next few weeks. Today, I’m pleased to announce a few of the sessions sponsored by our friends at the Atlas Network.

Here’s where you can find the Atlas Network at ISFLC17:

Dr. Tom G Palmer — “A New, Old Challenge: Global-Anti-Libertarianism”


A spectre is haunting the world: the spectre of radical anti-libertarian movements, each grappling with the others like scorpions in a bottle and all competing to see which can dismantle the institutions of liberty the fastest. Some are ensconced in the universities and other elite centers, and some draw their strength from populist anger. Dr. Palmer will discuss where these anti-libertarian movements came from, how they feed off each other, and how libertarians can fight back.

 “Advancing Liberty Around the World” (Panel) — Alexander Skouras


The cause of human liberty knows no borders. The Atlas Network is composed of 467 independent organizations in 97 countries, a community of liberty lovers who fight every day for free enterprise, the rule of law, property rights, and limited government. Oftentimes against incredible odds in very hostile places. Join Atlas Network’s Alexander Skouras and a panel of international freedom champions to learn the landscape of the global liberty movement.


Clark Ruper  “Fundraising for Freedom on Campus and Beyond”  


Passion for liberty will only get you so far. In order to make an impact, both student groups and non-profits need resources, and it all starts with the most important resource: money. Fortunately the libertarian movement is supported by successful capitalists who know that money is not the “root of all evil” but a standard of exchanging value for value. These philanthropists will support your work if you can identify them, make a compelling case, and most importantly: ask!

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul will be speaking – for the first time ever – at the Tenth Annual International Students For Liberty Conference!


You know him as the man who filibustered for nearly 13 hours to try and block John Brennan’s confirmation as CIA director, showing a profound dedication to the preservation of American civil liberties. He’s also been a staunch advocate of criminal justice reform, an opponent of the out-of-control executive, and a vocal critic of the Federal Reserve and U.S. monetary policy.

Now, he’s gearing up to oppose superhawk John Bolton’s likely appointment as Secretary of State.

Here’s a bit more about Senator Paul:Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul, M.D. is one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Rand has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope.

A devoted husband and father, Dr. Paul and his family live in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Rand owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. As a hard-working and dedicated physician – not a career politician – Rand Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference.

We’re honored to have him at this year’s International Conference. Register now before it’s too late!!
