Our Vision, Mission and Strategy

Our vision is of a world of opportunity and prosperity based on the foundations of individual freedom, limited government, the rule of law, the protection of private property, free markets and free speech.

Our mission is to make the texts and ideas which explore and explain the principles and values of a free society accessible in countries and languages where they are currently not available.

Our strategy is to increase the number of people who share our understanding of and commitment to liberty and will in their turn become the intellectuals who change the climate of opinion in their countries in favour of freedom.

We know that ideas have consequences and that many influential and inspirational advocates of a free society read just one book which had a profound impact on their understanding, leading them to dedicate their lives to the pursuit of the free society.

But unfortunately ideas that explain the relationships between individual freedom, limited government and prosperity are not available to most people in the world.  This is the case in much of Africa, Asia and the Middle East particularly if you don’t have access to fast download speeds.  For those who do not speak English or another European language, they are generally not available at all.


Our Impact

First as International Policy Network and now as Network for a Free Society we have been working with colleagues in many countries since 2006 to distribute texts that explore and explain the principles and foundations of free societies.

There are many countries where these texts are rarely available in hard copy and many are either not available on line or accessing them on line is impossible because of download speeds or that it is just too expensive.

The CDs are relatively cheap to ship in bulk and from over 90,000 of the 2nd Edition shipped by June 2012 every single one has arrived and in working order which is an impressive record for the shippers given their distant destinations.
