HACERís Alberdi Award was inspired by the 19th-century Argentinean intellectual Juan Bautista Alberdi. He will be remembered in the Americas as a champion of freedom for his contributions to the defense of liberty and for outlining the Argentinean constitution in 1853.

The prize was developed to encourage and reward writers, essayists and commentators whose published works promote the institutions of a free society in the Americas: limited government, rule of law fostered by an independent judiciary, protection of private property, free-markets, free-speech, and sound science. The prize, a total of USD $1,500, will be awarded every year.

A panel of judges with proven knowledge of Alberdiís legacy and Latin American challenges will chose the winner. This year's panel includes:

  • Tito Livio Caldas: Chairman of the Board of Directors, LEGIS S.A., Colombia

  • Alejandro Chafuen: President and CEO of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation.

  • Valeriano Garcia: Economist, Ph.D. University of Chicago.

  • Alvaro Vargas Llosa, Peruvian Writer and director of The Center on Global Prosperity, Independent Institute.

  • Lucia Santa Cruz, Chilean Historian, Master of Philosophy, Oxford.
