12th European Resource Bank Meeting in Istanbul

We invite Friends of Liberty to join us

at the 12th European Resource Bank Meeting in Istanbul on 14 – 17 May 2015 hosted by Association for Liberal Thinking advancing ideas of liberty more than 20 years in Turkey.


Dear friends of liberty,

European Resource Bank Meeting hosts intellectual entrepreneurs, think tankers from all around Europe, who promote individual liberties, limited government, free markets, pluralism, peace and prosperity.

European Resource Bank Meeting is an opportunity to assess the impact of our efforts to weaken bureaucratic powers and to enhance free competition. Getting together can help us in many ways addressing our accomplishments and failures and to evaluate our strengths and weaknesses. This also stimulates our desire to be more efficient, to strive for excellence. As we understand the power of division of labor and voluntary co-operation in a free society, we need to know each other to discover new ways for cooperation and a Resource Bank is the place for that.

Joining us for the 12th edition of the European Resource Bank, you will enjoy inspiring speakers that will help us analyze recent happenings in Europe and draw lessons. It would also be a good opportunity to discuss the consequences of regulations and on the contrary what free markets and competition offer for Europe. Moreover, we will have practical sessions on how to better influence policy makers, and to expand our work.

This year we are going to have an open interactive session to have free exchange on how we can better network.

For young think tanks or associations, the now traditional Dragon’s Den offers a chance to win up to € 5,000 for the best Project. You can find more information at the web site. (

Istanbul is an exclusive transcontinental city; cultural, and economical heart of Turkey. The ERB is going to take place at the Legacy Ottoman Hotel in the old historical and commercial peninsula.

We very much hope to see you there.
