Boudewijn Bouckaert (1947, Belgium) is an emeritus professor of law at Ghent University.
Bouckaert studied law and philosophy in Ghent before going on to work in these fields at Ghent University. During his time at the university, he developed the discipline of law and economics, with this eventually coming to form part of the European Master in Law and Economics programme.
He is a fervent advocate of classical liberalism and was a co-founder of the think tanks Nova Civitas and Cassandra. These two think tanks merged in 2010 to form Libera!, whose chairman Bouckaert is.
Bouckaert has also worked as a politician and he represented the LDD (Libertarian, Direct, Democratic) in the Flemish Parliament from 2009 to 2014.
