We firmly believe the most effective solutions
to current problems in the Venices* are drawn from
those same values and principles - individual liberty, institutional
integrity, free enterprise, limited government and commonwealth
- which motivated with extreme success our Venetian Forefathers.
The Venetian Institute was founded in 2006 and is based in
London (U.K.). Its mission is to assess the institutional,
social and economic issues currently facing the Venices*
and to generate solutions based on the traditional Venetian
principles of free enterprise, institutional integrity, limited
government, individual liberty and commonwealth. Every single
issue is approached from an international point of view, and
proposed solutions are based on in-depth research and analysis
of successful foreign settings.
As part of its activities, the Venetian Institute publishes
books, research papers, and short studies, prepared by its
own experts or in collaboration with renowned foreign experts.
With the aim of creating a lasting desire for reform, the
Institute then actively promotes these publications by means
of public debates, conferences, and mass- media appearances,
and by direct mailing to journalists, academics, politicians,
business people and the general public, in Venetia*.
Active participation in the consultation process or in political
campaigns is not how the Venetian Institute operates; nor
does it take a stand for or against any political party. On
the contrary, the Institute is completely independent of any
political party, religious or economic interest group. This
independence is ensured, on one hand, by a conscious diversification
in its base of financial support and, on the other hand, by
the integrity of the members of its Board of Directors and
its Advisory Council.
