Generation Liberty, a project of the Institute of Public Affairs, is dedicated to advancing the ideas of liberty and freedom on Australian university campuses.

Generation Liberty provides a forum where all students, regardless of their background or their area of study, can come together to discuss ideas and the challenges facing the world today.

A non-partisan group which has no affiliation with any political party, Generation Liberty aims to provide students with a better understanding of how free markets and individual liberty can create social change by enabling human flourishing.

Generation Liberty seeks to connect students from all walks of life on university campuses and provide support for pro-liberty students and student organisations across Australia.
