SFLSporeLogo001

Students For Liberty (Singapore) (SFL) - an international student organisation whose mission is to educate, develop and empower the next generation of leaders of liberty. SFL believes in the philosophy of classical liberalism, which stands for the free exchange of goods and services, the free movement of ideas, people & capital, a robust market economy, civil liberties and the rule of law. These ideas, carried by thinkers like Adam Smith, John Locke, Friedrich Hayek, have contributed to human welfare throughout history and are increasingly relevant in our times. SFL (Singapore) was started in July 2017 to promote an awareness and appreciation of this classical liberal intellectual tradition amongst students in Singapore. It is a non-political, non-partisan community of young people whose main aim is intellectual education. It is headed by Bryan Cheang, a graduate student of philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) at King's College, London, and was previously from the National University of Singapore.
