About Us

We support the ideas and values expressed and defended by Sir Isaiah Berlin – pluralism, tolerance and individual liberty – and aim to promote the public interest and knowledge about his thoughts and ideas.

The Isaiah Berlin Association of Latvia

The Isaiah Berlin Association of Latvia was founded in 2011 to promote the ideas and values of Sir Isaiah Berlin, in particular by organising an annual lecture in his memory. The honorary patron of the Association is Madame Vaira Viķē-Freiberga, president of The Republic Of Latvia from 1999 to 2007. The executive members of the committee are Andris Aukmanis (head of the Soros Foundation Latvia), political scientist Ivars Ijabs and Robert Cottrell (proprietor of Robert’s Books). Nils Muižnieks, of the University of Latvia, also served as a member of the committee, until his appointment in 2012 as Human Rights Commissioner at the Council of Europe.
