This European Liberal Forum seminar will precede the LYMEC Spring Congress and will debate different ideas for Europe. By providing participants with a combination between a political philosophical approach (unusual in political events) and a hands-on political approach, we aim to shed new light on how knowing where our ideas come from can help us become better debaters and can help us improve our policy proposals in our respective contexts. This seminar will also take participants through the ideas of different parties and challenge them to try to find ways to shape a liberal message for Europe.
Topic 1: Setting the stage: Defining liberalism in the 2020’s
Topic 2: Presentation of the electoral manifestos of different parties
Topic 3: Presentation of the ALDE manifesto
Topic 4: Discussion on how to shape a unified liberal message at the European level
