UCEMA Friedman Hayek Center for the Study of a Free Society

The UCEMA Friedman Hayek Center for the Study of a Free Society was born with the purpose of housing and promoting the study of all the facets that make a society in which freedom, with responsibility is an unrenounceable principle.

The Center will be interdisciplinary, will have a specifically academic character, and the only requirement to form part of it will consist in having the highest degree in an area of science and communing with the founding objective.

Political science, economics, history, philosophy and culture, among others, will meet in this space to continue with the guiding principle that has characterized the University since its origin: to promote academic debate with the greatest rigor, within a framework of absolute freedom of thought.

The UCEMA Friedman Hayek Center
for the Study of a Free Society is a member
of the following organizations: Atlas Network
and the Liberal Network of Latin America (Relial).
