The Chairman's Note

Dear friends of liberty,

It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you on the official online platform of the Global Communications Centre, a joint organisation of The Lucha Institute, The Free Society Institute and The Naiad Centre.

Our mutual vision of the free, responsible and prosperous society made it possible for our three organisation to merge and to strengthen the pro-liberty movement in Montenegro.

Yes, our core values and principles could be found in the classical liberalism, but the centre tends to promote open dialogue among different intellectual views, thus questioning our understanding of the issues and challenges of modern societies.

For that reason, we founded The Lucha School of Economics. It is an annual event for young and open-minded individuals who seek to make their career in business, politics or academia. It is a platform for the new generations of leaders in Montenegro, and broader. Thus, if you share the values and principles of the centre, we ask you to support our efforts by becoming a member.

Yours sincerely,

Slobodan Franeta
Chairman & Co-Founder
