Ayn Rand Center Europe – Spreading the Ideas of Objectivism Worldwide

Ayn Rand Center Europe is a non-profit organization, established in 2016, originally founded under the name Balkan Objectivist Center. We began our mission with our main program – the John Galt School, through which we presented to the young individuals across the Balkan region the benefit of Objectivism in their lives. As we spread our influence and operations, we eventually took a new name and have now become the headquarters of European Objectivism – Ayn Rand Center Europe, which allowed us to respond to greater market demands. Currently, we are working on expanding our programs globally!

By using the written words that Ayn Rand left behind and spreading her wisdom in those places that have had a troubled past, we wish to cooperate with extraordinary, young minds across the world and help them become the most productive version of themselves. The main goal, besides a liberal society and economy, is to fill every corner of Earth with free-thinking minds – those who defy the norms and the expectations of society, unwavering in their mission to be the voice of reason. Courage is our virtue, and commitment to our own integrity is the philosophy which guides us.

“Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. […]’’ – Ayn Rand
We believe it is very important that an individual is, first and foremost, aware of their own personal interests and that by investing in themselves, following their own vision and using their own mind, they build their success and happiness. ARCE is determined to maintain its trademark programs on Objectivism, with the goal of creating a community of new intellectuals, of dedicated men and women who have acquainted themselves with the ideas and core values of this philosophy. Our role in this is to help all those who are ready, brave enough, motivated, and decisive, to step onto this path. By education in the fields of Objectivism, you will gain the necessary knowledge and cultivate abilities to guide you towards achieving your full potential.
