Summer Seminars are moving online! Register below.
A New Seminar for a New Decade
For nearly 50 years, IHS has gathered the brightest minds to its Summer Seminars. Friedrich Hayek. James Buchanan. Robert Nozick.
In 2020, we’re introducing a brand-new format with more speakers and a renewed focus on the challenges facing liberal democracy.
Two seminars. Six days. Boundless ideas.
Summer Seminars explore the nature of free society. Lectures, discussions, and evening socials lead to connections—intellectual and personal connections—that can last a lifetime.
In 2020, due to COVID-19, IHS will be moving its two five-day seminars online.
The Classical Liberal Tradition

Investigating the liberal account of free societies, from the proto-liberalism of Locke and Montesquieu through Smith, Hayek, the Ostroms, and beyond.

Modern Challenges to Liberty
July 7 – 12, 2020

“I attended the event trying to figure out what IHS exactly was. But I was hooked after the second lecture. I’m pretty sure I’ll be an IHS person for life.“– Recent Alumnus
