Back cover text:
Liberal International is the world federation of liberal political parties. Founded in 1947, it has become the pre-eminent political network for promoting liberalism, strengthening liberal political parties and the promotion of liberal democracy around the world.
There exist a number of common principles that unite all liberal parties from Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and, more recently, also the Arab world: Human rights, free and fair elections and multi-party democracy, social justice, tolerance, the market economy and a strong sense of international solidarity.
In this book, you will find, for the first time in the Arabic language, the most important political documents of the international liberal movement. Hopefully, many people will read these documents and thereby better understand the liberal concept which is the key to personal freedom and a better future for all members of society
