The Adam Smith Institute invites you and your Sixth-Form students to attend our next
Independent Seminar on the Open Society (ISOS) – a free, day long seminar which explores the
intersections of political and economic theory and current affairs.
Each ISOS features talks and Q&A with leading experts, economists, academics and politicians.
The seminars are designed to compliment and enhance a range of AS and A-Level syllabi, and
are open to all students with an interest in politics, economics, philosophy and history.
The seminar is split into half-hour speaker sessions, and also features an interactive debate.
Sessions confirmed for November’s ISOS so far include:
“What Economists and Politicians often get wrong”
Dr Madsen Pirie, President of the Adam Smith Institute
“Tackling the UK’s ‘Debt Ratchet’”
James Zuccollo, Senior Economist at Reform
“Civil Liberties in a Digital Age”
Emma Carr, Director of Big Brother Watch
“Politics: Problem or Solution?”
Steve Baker, MP for Wycombe
ISOS is free to attend, and lunch will be provided. Students are welcome to attend either with
teachers or independently, and there is no limit on group size.

More details can be found overleaf, and please pass this invitation on to any teachers or

I look forward to hearing from you,
