El-Baghdadi is known for his satirical work, “The Arab Tyrant’s Manual,” which humorously highlights how embattled leaders in the Middle East and North Africa responded to the 2011 uprisings.

FACES OF LIBERTY
WHAT ATTENDEES SAY
Extremely informative and insightful lectures. Excellent for networking. ESFLC offers enlightening and tremendous chance to debate the liberal ideas.
There is nothing better than to meet people from different countries and know that there is something that connects us all.
You'll leave both academically and professionally inspired, and with new friends and contacts from all over the world.
It is extremely inspiring to gather pro-liberty students from all around Europe. To me the most significant part is that we encourage an academic point of view.
I could not think of better way to spend my weekend than in this which both edifying and entertaining. You should come!
There is no better place to broaden your mind. It is the interactions with other students, all with different backgrounds, that deepen your knowledge.
An amazing experience fulfilled with great liberal philosophy, young minds and future leaders! Something you shouldn't miss.
