The Ludwig von Mises Centre’s exists for the following reasons:
- To publish essays and other scholarly works explaining the benefits of political and economic freedom and of toleration in the sense put forth by such philosophers as John Locke, David Hume, Adam Smith, Edmund Burke, John Stuart Mill, F.A. von Hayek, Karl Popper, Ludwig von Mises, and many others in the liberal tradition;
- To hold conferences and to appear in the British and international media to explain the above;
- To bring to general notice such failings of the British State as may appear from a consideration of the generality of the above;
- To train and give general encouragement and support to young writers and philosophers who show interest in the British liberal tradition.
So far as the specific claims of the British liberal tradition are true, the beneficiaries of these objects are the entirety of the human race, without regard to race, religion or sex, though mainly the people of the United Kingdom, which is where the company operates.
Though it exists to advance a distinct perspective on politics, economics, law and ethics, Mises UK is not affiliated to any political party, and takes no part in electoral politics, either in the United Kingdom or in any other country.
