ISFLC is almost indescribable.
Yes, it’s a student conference, but it’s so much more than that.
With 55% of 2016 attendees being non-students, ISFLC has quickly become one of the liberty movement’s premier events—a place for libertarian amateurs and experts to meet and explore ideas together.
This will be the 10th year that we gather students and alumni together to discuss best practices for organizing, learn about new developments in the cause of liberty, meet old and new friends, and garner the energy to go back to our homes and continue to carry on the fight for liberty.
And it is going to be big.

WHAT THE MEDIA HAD TO SAY
WHAT ATTENDEES HAD TO SAY
“Without the 2014 ISFLC, I would not have the friends, connections, and resources from the liberty movement that I do today. I would not have felt the real passion and love for justice that people my age can express. I would never have met my academic heroes.”
“Whether it was stories of neo-Nazis invading a Drug War event in Serbia or the struggles of activists in socialist Venezuela, I could not help but feel inspired. Hearing how much other activists are fighting for liberty around the world in countries far less free than the United States, I could not help feel that I could do more. It was because of this conference and the stories of these inspiring people that I decided to become a Students For Liberty Campus Coordinator. In all honestly, doing so has been the best decision I have ever made.”
"ISFLC is a time to see old friends and have the best time of your life. It's also a time to meet new friends and grow your network. Attendees at ISFLC get to explore ideas that illuminate the world and inspire action for human freedom. Perhaps more importantly, they can develop relationships that will enrich their lives in the years to come."
“If the A-list speakers, top-notch breakout sessions, live Ask Me Anythings, professional and educational opportunities, free books and swag, socials, hotel parties, live music, Edward Snowden Skype-ing in, activism training, seminars, and almost 2,000 libertarians isn’t enough to bring you to ISFLC, come for the people who will change your life. ISFLC is a conference by and for people who love liberty, but more importantly, it is by and for people who use their liberty to love.”
“The International Students For Liberty Conference was the best conference I have ever attended. I was surrounded by a diverse group of individuals and tremendous speakers who transformed my views of libertarianism. This conference is the reason why I will proudly advocate for freedom around my campus and bring like-minded individuals together to create a brighter future around me.”
“ISFLC was great! We got to meet so many intelligent, driven people from around the world.”
“Intellectually stimulating and emotionally inspiring, ISFLC is truly a unique experience for liberty loving individuals of all ages.”
“Besides the amazing lectures and brilliant speakers, my favorite aspect of ISFLC is the possibility of meeting libertarians from all over the world to discuss and share our views. Being able to get in contact with people from different cultures, struggling with big government in different ways, allowed me to better appreciate the freedoms I still have and motivated me to defend them more fiercely.”
“ISFLC is SFL's flagship global confluence of youth trying to gain a better understanding of the libertarian intent. I found it an exhilarating experience to meet and greet the who’s who of the libertarian movement. ISFLC is also a time where I meet my colleagues from around the world who are striving for a freer, just, peaceful and more reasonable world.”
“This was my third ISFLC and I am amazed with what the conference is able to achieve each year. I especially loved the several “Ask Me Anything” sessions this year, which allowed me to interact with my favourite libertarian professors, like Steve Horwitz and Bryan Caplan. But my favourite moment was when Jeffrey Tucker discussed his impression of Murray Rothbard; that was very personal and obscure knowledge about Murray and it is something I could only get at the International Students For Liberty Conference."
"The most energizing event you will ever attend"
"The future of Liberty is happening here"
