During the first half of 2018, a series of expert forums will be organised around Europe on topical matters and challenges facing the European Union, and will be conducted as the ALDE Party considers its manifesto for the 2019 elections to the European Parliament.
Experts in the respective fields from our member parties are warmly invited to participate in these meetings for sharing their views and actively contributing to the manifesto drafting process.
The ninth Manifesto Forum, organised by ALDE Party took place in Rome on Monday 7 May. The main topical focus this time was on Migration.
The discussions on Migration focused on two main aspects: the management of the Migration flows and Successful Integration. The aim of the debate was to discuss the changes, their potential implications and challenges ahead.
Before the second session, a video message from Bart Somers was also projected.
