KEFIM

KEFIM is ACRO’s parent organisation, the leading free market and classical liberal think tank in Greece. With an operating budget of more than £100K, KEFIM organises events, publishes books, studies and policy papers that promote policies that increase individual freedom. It is expected that Classical Liberals may have differences with Ayn Rand’s philosophy, so KEFIM takes a broad view of the overall freedom movement, whereas ACRO focuses on the work of Rand and on reason.
