The Center for Liberal Moder­nity (LibMod)
is a think tank devoted to democ­racy, indi-
vidual liberty and cos­mopoli­tanism, in short:
to the defense and renewal of open society.

Liberal moder­nity is under pres­sure all over
the world. In a time of fun­da­men­tal changes,
we promote cross-par­ti­san reflec­tion about
the future of our common society and the
inter­na­tional order. We serve as a ral­ly­ing
point for free thinkers of all polit­i­cal persu-
asions and search for answers to the great
chal­lenges of our time.

LibMod was founded by Marieluise Beck
and Ralf Fücks in 2017.
