Center for Civic Freedoms (Czech: Centrum pro občanské svobody) is a think-tank founded by Václav Klaus Jr. in January 2017, focused on civil liberties, economic issues, and education. Klaus said that his aim is for the institute to compete with the Václav Havel Library.
The Center is active in Šumava National Park, which was devastated by bark beetles. When the Czech parliament approved a new environmental protection law, local municipalities protested because they believed it ignored the local human population. The Center for Civic Freedoms supported these municipalities, with Klaus Jr. stating that people are also a part of the environment. On 16 March 2017 the think-tank organised a conference about the situation in Šumava, which was attended by around 150 people.
