Welcome to the Africa Liberal Network … the home of Liberal Democracy in Africa
Who we are
The Africa Liberal Network (ALN) is an alliance of 47 liberal democratic political parties and organisations from 30 African countries. The ALN is an associate regional organisation of Liberal International, the world federation of liberal and progressive democratic political parties. We aim to promote liberal democratic principles across the African continent by (1) providing a platform for like-minded liberals in Africa to share information, experience, skills, and ideas, and (2) capacitating our member parties with the skills they need to win elections and manage governments based on Liberal values.
