    On Thursday 8 October in Brussels, the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) Party will host a working group discussion on the current refugee crisis. In light of recent international developments, and in the interests of expediting the resolution discussion process at the upcoming ALDE Congress in Budapest, there have been calls from member parties to form this working group to debate possible approaches and solutions to the crisis.

    The Liberal Democrat European Group (LDEG) was pleased to co-host with Business for New Europe (BNE) the launch of the Liberal Democrat party's distinct campaign to remain in the European Union (EU) in Bournemouth on Monday 21 September. To a packed room of 450 people, party leader Tim Farron MP, Catherine Bearder MEP, and Nick Hopkinson, LDEG chairman outlined their visions and some key messages for the Liberal Democrat campaign. As the only UK party which will unambiguously campaign for the UK's continued membership of the EU, it is hoped the Liberal Democrat campaign will not only help ensure the UK remains in the EU together with the IN campaign, but also contribute to the party's Fightback.
    Other speakers were Wolfgang Gerhardt, former leader, Freie Demokraten (FDP); Lucy Thomas, Campaigns Director, BNE; Laura Sandys, Chairman, European Movement UK, and Keith Reilly, Managing Director, Alfatronic Ltd.
