Partnership with the B&C Club: TALK WITH GASPARD KOENIG
About The Event
Gaspard Koenig runs the classical liberal think-tank GenerationLibre, which he created in 2013 and which has been ranked among the Top European Think Tanks in the 2017 Global Go-To Report.
GenerationLibre is based on a strong and clear world view, usually referred to as “Classical Liberal”. It can be summed up in the phrase «to live and let live». In other words, if the State is a necessity – which it may not be – its sole purpose should be to help individuals to gain autonomy and emancipation. It follows that any moral value or planned social organisation is doomed to fail and a true threat to freedom.
Gaspard is a graduate from Ecole Normale Supérieure (in Philosophy), he worked as a speechwriter for the Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, and as a strategy adviser at the EBRD in London. He is a published author of novels and essays, and a columnist for various newspapers – including Les Echos. He is also teaching philosophy at Sciences-Po University.
