The "Cercle du Libre Examen"
The Cercle du Libre Examen was founded at the ULB in 1928. It includes students from all faculties of the ULB, with different political and social backgrounds. They are all united by the wish to participate actively in university life and by the belief that university is a place in which they can engage politically and socially. This belief results in a critical outlook, in the hope to explore and to examine various points of view, different ways of thinking and living. Consequently, the Cercle does not defend or promote any ideology but tries to analyze them all in a critical way.
The Cercle's wish and belief come to life through many debates organized all year-round on various issues such as the war in Iraq, extreme-right wing parties, euthanasia, gay rights, etc. For each debate the Cercle du Libre Examen invites politicians, journalists, philosophers, and other personalities to discuss the topic.
