Digital Assembly 2023 #2

Dear liberal friends,  


We hope the summer time is going smoothly! 


It is time for our second LYMEC Digital Assembly of this year. This event (already our 7th) will take place online on Saturday, 2 September 2023 at 10 h 30 CEST (Brussels time). This event is supported by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) - European Dialogue. 

In an attempt to be more transparent to our member organisations, we would like to increase the amount of opportunities to meet the current leadership and to discuss together the main issues we are facing today in Europe.

The agenda will be as follows: 

  1. PART A - The event will start with the expert input from Urmas Paet, Renew Europe Group MEP focused on the topics of external relations and particularly enlargement, the Western Balkans and Eastern Partnership. A keynote address will be delivered by him moderated by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) - European Dialogue. It will be followed by a Q/A session for participants to deepen their knowledge on the topic of the event. The additional topics to be discussed will be: Enlargement, Turkey, Syria, China, Russia, TTIP, COVAX. 
  2. We will then deal with the latest proposals for resolutions of the working group on the renewal of our Policy book. We are focusing this time on the second and last part of Chapter 9 of our Policy book. The outcomes are available here (together with the archival proposals) and you will be able to submit your amendments and proposals for discussion to our Policy Officer ahead of the Assembly as well. This discussion will aim at finding compromises, creating alliances, exchange views and prepare the work for Congress. In no way the discussions will have a binding effect, resolutions will be debated and adopted at our next Congress. Amendments to resolutions should still be tabled for the Congress. However, the opinion of the Assembly will be transmitted as announcement during the working groups on resolutions taking place before the next Congress. All delegates will be able to intervene in the discussions following the rules of procedures in place. Questions or comments for this part, including your proposals/amendments can be directly sent to [email protected] and [email protected]
  3. PART B - It will be dedicated to the Bureau presenting what has been done so far since the Spring Congress (in Budapest in May) and what the plans and actions for the coming months are, especially in light of the European Elections in 2024 and the continuous Russian invasion of Ukraine. This will be primarily an opportunity for delegations to ask questions and share their concerns/comments with the current leadership. Questions or comments for Part A can be sent to [email protected] anytime ahead of the event or you can simply ask for the floor during the event.  

This is also the final working group on the renewal of our Policy Book, we are getting there!

The proposals/amendments should be:

  • Specific
  • Directly related to the outcomes of the policy book renewal
  • Mention the sentence/words amended in the existing text
  • Clearly specify the nature of the amendment (addition, replacement or deletion)
  • Wording of the change should be clear
  • Add a short justification (two sentences maximum)


  • The meeting will start at 10 h 30 CEST (Brussels time) and end around 13 h 30 CEST
