European Programs Director

Aleksandar Kokotović

European Programs Director

Bio: Aleksandar graduated from the University of Belgrade with a Bachelors degree in Political Science. He is also a Marketing Coordinator for the libertarian club, Libek, in Serbia. Aleksandar first got in touch with libertarian ideas during his first year of studies in the Faculty of Political Science, although he believes he was always a libertarian he was not aware that that is the name for someone who wants to live without having the government regulating his life. After a lecture from Radovan Durana from INESS Aleksandar applied for a Language of Liberty camp in Slovakia and his international pro-liberty activism started. He doesn’t want this to end anytime soon.

Favorite Figures in Liberty: Murray Rothbard, Frédéric Bastiat

On Students For Liberty: "Changes and new ideas grow fastest when they are well accepted by students. Being a part of an organization which has the tools to provide students with the help needed to spread the ideas of liberty is a great honor. I believe that in the years to come we will see what an important task SFL has been doing all these years. It’s exciting to be a part of that."

Bio: Kevin holds a Bachelor Degree in Law and Society and plans to pursue a Masters in Politics, Philosophy and Economics next semester. He has a particular interest in legal philosophy, societal reform, and justice. Driven by his belief that a freer more just world is possible, he has been actively involved in the promotion of personal freedom since 2009 having founded Ireland’s first pro-freedom forum.

On European Students For Liberty: “Being part of European Students For Liberty has accelerated my efforts to promote personal freedom and a freer world. Connecting with such bright, genuine and committed people from all over the world has been an inspiration – knowing there are 1000’s of others out there working for liberty fuels the fire in my belly and drives me to work towards worthwhile change. I can promote the ideas of liberty professionally and with purpose and thanks to the training, expertise and resources available through (E)SFL my efforts become much more effective.”
