Our International Partners
Our International Office works with numerous institutions and organisations from across the world. Below you will find information on our most important partners.
Liberal International is the world federation of liberal political parties. Founded in 1947 it has become the pre-eminent network for promoting liberalism, strengthening liberal parties and for the promotion of liberal democracy around the world. There are a number of common principles which unite all liberal parties from Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe; human rights, free and fair elections and multiparty-democracy, social justice, tolerance, social market economy, free trade, environmental sustainability and a strong sense of international solidarity.
As an internationalist party the Liberal Democrats are proud to have many members and supporters living overseas. Through Liberal Democrats Abroad we can have greater participation in the Party by our members and supporters overseas. We want to hear your views on our policies and listen to your concerns. We would also of course like to see the number of members increase.
The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) Party is the party for liberal democrat values in Europe. Together with our liberal member parties across the European continent we are translating the principle of freedom into politics, economics and all other areas of our societies. The ALDE Party provides an increasingly vital link between citizens and the EU institutions and is continuously growing in size and significance. The ALDE Party consists of 57 member parties from across Europe.
We work with our liberal sister-parties from all over the world.
