Libera! wants to continue the work of classically liberal thinkers, like Ludwig von Mises, as well as the more recent think tank project Cassandra. Libera!'s direct predecessor was the think tank Nova Civitas, the work of which focussed on student debates and dicussion groups. Its board of directors decided to shift the focus to academic research and publications, in order to attract new members. Fort that reason Libera! was founded in 2010. Libera! promotes the idea of a Flemish identity.
Organizational Structure and Funding
The think tank consists of a board of managers (3 persons), a supervisory board (4 persons), an advisory baord (seven persons), a general assembly (8 members) and two fellows.
