The rise of nationalist socialism in Fra

Marine_le_penAntiliberalism, anticapitalism, antiglobalizalisation: the nationalist party of Marine Le Pen in France is no longer "just" an extreme right party. It in fact synthezises all protectionist, paternatist and phobic propositions of the French political spectrum. The new "workers' party" borrows from islamophobia and ant-immigration on the right to big welfare state, corporatist statuses and generous welfare rights on the left. See Madeline Grant's article in NewsWeek with an interview of Emmanuel Martin, as well as this article by Emmanuel Martin on the issue, after the European elections.

IES-Europe: 25 years nurturing freedom..

The 2014 International Property Rights I

IES-Europe is partnering with the Property Rights Alliance in the launching of the 2014 International Property Rights Index. Property rights are a key institution for development and prosperity. Not only do they give the economic incentive to invest in the future, they also contribute to give us a form of dignity. They are an inescapable element of individual, social and economic flourishing.

Leonard Liggio (1933-2014) RIP

We are sorry to report that Leonard Liggio (1933-2014) passed away on October 14, 2014. Our friend Leonard was instrumental in launching the Institute for Humane Studies - Europe, which is now the Institute for Economic Studies Europe, and of which he was a board member. His role in the spreading of the liberty movement in Europe has been absolutely crucial, helping to create the network of liberal intellectuals. As a historian, he had the "big picture" - of the civilizing effects of liberty - clearly in mind and also knew the small details of the story of many kings and intellectuals. He was a "walking encyclopedia". Always kind, humble, modest, always smiling and always ready to spend time with students to advise them on readings and authors. The world has lost a hero of liberty.
