Introduction to the Danish Social-Liberal Party
Det Radikale Venstre (the Danish Social-Liberal Party) was founded as an independent party in May 1905. Originally many intellectuals, small agrarians, and craftsmen supported Det Radikale Venstre, but today its members represent all parts of Danish society.
Det Radikale Venstre is situated at the centre of the Danish political spectrum. From here the party has co-operated with both the ‘left’ and the ‘right’ sides of the Folketing (the Danish Parliament).This has made it possible to contribute considerably to the political development, whilst being a guarantor against excesses from both political wings.
Radicalism and Liberalism in Denmark
In May 2011 Radikale Venstre - the Danish Social Liberal Party - celebrated its one-hundredth-sixth birthday. Throughout the twentieth century the party has had a central role in the Danish political history, a story well known to Danish readers, but most likely not to a international audience.
Radicalism and Liberalism in Denmark The European Liberal Democrat and Reform
The European Liberal Democrat and Reform (ELDR) party brings together political parties with common liberal, democratic and reform ideals from more than 30 European countries. The ELDR party is an international non-profit association (aisbl) which has its seat in Brussels (Belgium).
The role of the ELDR party is to:
* strengthen the Liberal Democrat movement in the EU and throughout Europe
* assist Liberal Democrat politicians across Europe to become better acquainted and to define a common political vision
* draw up and adopt a common manifesto for the European Parliament elections.
The European Liberal Democrats were the first to create a European political family in 1976 in view of the first European elections and established ELDR as a true European political party in 1993. Representing millions of European voters, the ELDR party provides an increasingly vital link between citizens and the EU institutions and is continuously growing in size and significance.Read more:
