New academy of the Freedom Education Institute!

Applications are open until February 28

Politics does not happen in a vacuum. The framework conditions under which political processes take place are defined anew every day by external influences. A broad apron of media, intellectuals and institutions determines the conditions under which a daily political debate takes place even before it begins.

Who decides which opinions are allowed? What is this often quoted "zeitgeist"? Where does it come from and how can it be changed?

The Metapolitics course introduces participants to the most important metapolitical processes and concepts and enables them to understand and help shape the metapolitical discourse in Austria. Lecturers include renowned experts from the German-speaking world.

Graduates understand the social processes that give rise to discourse and subsequently control it. Furthermore, they have an understanding of the role of history in society and are able to contribute to a meta-political discourse in Austria.                           

Module I (March 24-25, 2023): Basics: Introduction to Metapolitics

Module II (June 16 - 17, 2023): Interpretive sovereignty: the domination of concepts

Module III (September 15 - 16, 2023): Politics of History: The Power of History(s)

Module IV (November 10 - 11, 2023): Metapolitics in Practice


The written application must include a curriculum vitae and a brief letter of motivation as to why one wishes to participate in the Metapolitics Academy, and must be emailed to no later than February 28, 2023. The number of participants is limited to 14 people per cohort.

Target Audience:

The course is aimed at individuals who can distinguish between day-to-day politics and policy and have an intrinsic motivation to help shape our country beyond the time horizon of legislative sessions.


The Metapolitik Academy comprises a total of four modules. These will all be held in Vienna and will take place from Friday 1:30 pm to Saturday 4:00 pm each day. Accommodation and meals on a full board basis will be provided by the Freiheitliches Bildungsinstitut. Drinks at meals and all extras are to be paid for by the participants themselves.
