"A senior fellow at the Cato Institute and director of Cato University, Dr. Palmer received a doctorate from Oxford University and lectures frequently on the history of liberty and constitutionalism, globalization and free trade, individualism, public choice, and the moral and legal foundations of human rights. A lifelong advocate for human rights in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, Dr. Palmer has traveled throughout the region, holding seminars and smuggling in books, cash, photocopiers, and fax machines; he is also dedicated to translating and publishing textbooks on human rights and democracy in various central and eastern European languages. He is currently working on several human rights-oriented education programs in the Middle East, including an Arabic-language web site devoted to explaining and promoting democracy. Dr. Palmer has worked with the Liberty Fund, the Council on Public Policy, and the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, which in 2005 named him to its International Freedom Corps." [1]
