Global liberals convene for 204th Liberal International ExCom

Global liberals convened virtually over the weekend of 1-3 October for the 204th Executive Committee of Liberal International.

Over three days of discussions and voting, delegates adopted a range of resolutions of important political urgencies from COVID and Polio Vaccines, to the situation at the Serbia-Kosovo Border, and on the International Communities Response to the Taliban in Afghanistan. You can read all adopted resolutions here.

Delegates also voted to award the Liberal International Prize for Freedom 2021 to Afghan women and girls’ advocate Dr Sima Samar, who is also Afghanistan's first female vice president and a UN diplomat, and voted to rename the Liberal International Medal of Liberalism to the Hans van Baalen Medal of Liberalism, in memory of the former President of Liberal International and the ALDE Party.

Five new member parties joined as observers (Afek Tunis, Tunisia; Evopoli, Chile; Liberal Party of Morocco; Vente Venezuela; and Yesh Atid, Israel) as well as two new think tanks to broaden capacity for policy development (The Bridge Tank, France; and Le Cercle Libéral, Ivory Coast).
