Lithuanian: Laisvės studijų centras (LSC)
Laisvės studijų centras (LSC) is a liberal think tank aiming to promote individual freedom and responsibility as the most important values in a democratic society. LSC is committed to the following goals of fostering the emergence of young leaders, popularizing liberal values, promoting civil liberties and providing platform for every citizen to engage in democratic process. LSC has its primary interest on strengthening civil society by organising educational activities: visits and open lectures for high-school students, leadership and political communication trainings for youngsters and for liberal community in Lithuania. The most notable recent projects, among the others, are the constantly ongoing discussions in regions of Lithuania about freedom, liberalism and the future of the European Union. LSC aims to establish itself as a profound institution of public policy analysis and proposals. Having a wide network of the reform-makers in Lithuania, we seek to contribute in various public policy spheres, education, health and public administration issues in particular. One of the key objectives for LSC is to build a long-lasting platform of training for public sphere leaders not only from Lithuania, but also from other countries in Europe. In doing our activities we cooperate closely with the Liberal Movement of Lithuania and other liberal organisations in Lithuania and abroad.
