A tight-knit circle of conservative politicians, managers and military strategists who continue to meet in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, four times a year.

The Vaduz Institute (Institut d’Études Politiques) is a tight-knit circle of conservative politicians, managers and military strategists who meet in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, four times a year.

Because of its very secretive way of working, the group, which still exists today, has so far been ignored by research and the public.

Overview

Founded in 1959 (or 1961) at the initiative of the Swede Arvid Fredborg. Its first president was the German conservative (CDU) politician Hans-Joachim von Merkatz[1]

The Institute played a role as a conservative forum for discussion on current and global political issues. It was founded in 1961 by the senior management of the conservative CEDI-group and is based in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. Following the example of Anglo-Saxon political clubs, a tight-knit circle of conservative politicians, managers and military strategists met here in seclusion. Under the patronage of the Prince of Liechtenstein, they exchanged views on the latest developments in the individual countries and at international level on four weekends a year.[2]

The lawyer Jean Violet, also a driving force behind le Cercle, was also active in the Vaduz Institute.

The Institute is of interest to Aleksander Zielinski.[citation needed]
