Freedom is a key element by which people succeed and specialize in what they do best. A violation of this essential value can create serious problems within a society, especially when the government is the principal transgressor. Kevin Lyons develops a legal strategy for the establishment of free cities, using international law and arbitration techniques as resources, in order to expand options for this social experiment. He also speaks about the possible locations for these cities and explains their internal logic, which focuses on allowing freedom of choice and the free development of individuals.
