The University of Exeter Freedom Society is a non-partisan political society, which believes broadly in economic freedom and civil liberties but we have no set ideology or party line. We are instead home to a wide range of views, from Libertarians and Classical Liberals to more traditional Thatcherites and conservatives.
We work in conjunction with The Freedom Association (TFA) and share the same seven principles of a free society: Individual Freedom, Personal and Family Responsibility, The Rule of Law, Limited Government, Free Market Economy, National Parliamentary Democracy, Strong National Defences.
In addition to holding many great socials, we also hosts talks and debates by a wide range of high profile speakers on many important and controversial issues. Recent speakers have included, Directors of think tanks, MEP's, noted economists, as well as academics and journalists, and we have many more lined up for this year.
As mentioned we have a very active social side and hold many fantastic socials from pub crawls to poker nights to joint socials with the other political societies. This coming academic year will be our busiest to date with a new committee dedicated to organising great socials.
