This post is part of a new “Student Spotlight” SFL blog series in which we honor the best and brightest student activists in our network by highlighting the top student, group, and event of the week and share their accomplishments to inspire other leaders to step up their game in advancing the cause of liberty.
Congratulations to Nikola Ristić, Ana Jakšić, Konstantin Lijakovic, Vuk Velebit, and every member of the Studenti Za Slobodu – FPN (Students For Liberty – Faculty of Political Sciences) for being chosen as SFL’s Group of the Week! This group also works with Studenti Za Slobodu – Srbija (Students For Liberty – Serbia). We want to recognize both groups for their courageous commitment to liberty. They stood firmly for liberty when a group of Neo-Nazis stormed their ESFL End the Drug War Event, and they organized a protest against violence in University Institutions when the Dean of Political Faculty was attacked by two young men.

Group’s Mission & Focus
Our organization is a student organization whose goal is to develop and promote awareness among students about the importance of civil rights and freedom by encouraging student activism and academic interest for political theory. We are promoting the ideas of individual freedom, limited government and free market economics. To do this in a successful way, our group is highly focused on activism, ideas and social connections. In addition to the above-mentioned protest against violence, an example of our activism is our “Taxpayers March,” which we organized in cooperation with Libertarian Club – Libek from Belgrade, Serbia. We focus on ideas by organizing public panel discussions such as our recent events on marijuana legalization, media freedom in Serbia, and internal discussions about works of political and social theorists.
Our group mainly focus on individual rights and the individual responsibilities that they entail.
