We've got a fun lineup at our Liberty Lectures, next October 19th:

Chandran Kukathas (LSE) - 'Liberty and Multiculturalism'

Dr Adam Martin (KCL) -'The Political Economy of a Basic Income'

Jamie Whyte (ASI Fellow) - 'Evidence-Based Policy or Policy-Based Evidence?'

Theodore Dalrymple (TBC) - 'Culture as a Cause of Poverty' 

These are usually student-only, but we've opened them up to non-students as well. Tell your friends!
