IoI Parents Forum

The Parents Forum was launched at the Battle of Ideas in 2006, and has been privileged to host sessions dealing with parents, children and the family at every Battle of Ideas since then. The Battle of Ideas is at the cutting edge of understanding the relationship between the individual and society, and is passionate about personal autonomy. These are key areas that the Parents Forum investigates.

It is invaluable to hear these, and many other themes being discussed in specific ways at such a high level and so openly. The Battle of Ideas is a must for those who really want to expand their understanding of the world.
