We are happy to announce that IFLRY will hold it’s 2016 Executive committee in Amman, the capital of Jordan, from the 8-11 December 2016 and welcome all our member organizations to participate!

Over five years since the Arab Spring started, IFLRY wants to join its member organizations and partners in the MENA region for its final Executive Committee. Besides addressing organizational issues, we will share best practices and there will be a conference on entrepreneurship and economic self-determination. With this event we wish to gather young liberals from all over the world to discuss solutions to the high level of youth unemployment, social innovation, starting a business and (economic) autonomy.

The Executive Committee & General Assembly
The executive committee and the General Assembly are the statutory meetings of IFLRY. They serve as IFLRY’s highest decision making bodies where every organization is represented. During the EC, each organization has one vote, whereas during the GA every organization is represented relative to size. The statutory meetings adopt resolutions, decide on membership issues, discuss changes to the statutes, finances and much more. As we will discuss membership issues and finances, there was an invitation sent by the bureau for an extraordinary GA.

The conference on Entrepreneurship and Economic Self-determination
As liberals we believe that entrepreneurship and economic self-determination are necessary tools to reach prosperity. We believe that societies thrive when individuals can follow their dreams and take care of themselves. This conference will discuss matters such as youth unemployment, social innovation, entrepreneurship and much more.
