The Society for the Renovation of Liberalism was a short-lived libertarian organisation set up in 1938 by F. A. Hayek, following the initial success of the Lippmann Colloquium in gathering together neo-liberal economists. Abandoned due to the War, the project was resurrected by Hayek in 1948 as the Mont Pelerin Society.

Members included Frank Knight and Henry Simons, both of whom would train Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago, Walter Lippman, Karl Popper, Ludwig von Mises, and Sir John Clapham, a senior official of the Bank of England who from 1940-46 was the president of the British Royal Society.
