The International Alliance of Libertarian Parties (IALP) is an alliance of libertarian parties from across the globe. Founded in 6 March 2015, the bottom-up organization serves its member parties by facilitating the exchange of knowledge & experiences, and supporting libertarianism in a global scale. It does not seek to compete with the countless other libertarian organizations around the world, but sees them as partners to a common goal. 'The IALP is an association as defined in Art. 60 and related articles of the Swiss Civil Code (ZGB) with legal domicile in Baar, Switzerland.'[1][2] Geoff Neale serves as chairman.[3][4]

Founding

 The IALP was formally chartered by its Founding Members on March 6th, 2015, in Bournemouth, UK.


— Our History[5]

Vision

 Our vision is:
 • To identify and bring together the participants in this global libertarian political movement into a single and visible body, so that people both    inside and outside of the libertarian spectrum can be more aware of the scope of our movement. We are reaching out to libertarian parties everywhere, and     we welcome all to join with us.
 • To promote this global movement both internally and externally. Internally we are starting the process of sharing and educating each other on what we’ve learned and what has worked for each of us. Externally we will be publishing the activities of this global movement through our website. Come here to find out what’s happening around the libertarian political world.

— IALP MEMBERS[7]

Membership

ONLY PARTIES can join the alliance, NOT individuals, NOT member parties' subsidiaries and/or affiliates. Both established & emerging parties attempting to gain recognition may join so long as they engaging in real political activities, are 'essentially libertarian', and do not endorse or promote anything detrimental to individual liberties.

Prospective member parties must formally request for membership and accept the accept the IALP Charter's terms before being admitted by majority vote of existing members.

 What do we mean by essentially libertarian? We recognize that politics is a realm of selective prioritisation of objectives and methods. Each Member chooses which issues, causes and candidates it supports. This leads to differences of strategies, and the emphasising or de-emphasising of various perspectives. We do not impose on our Members, but we expect them to advocate for the increase of personal liberties, and to never advocate for the diminishment of personal liberties.
