Since 2004, CALD has been having a biennial summit with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), with the general objective of learning from each other’s experiences on crucial issues towards the advancement of the regionalization process in both regions. The 7th ALDE-CALD meeting that took place in Belgium had the theme “Bailout, Refugee Crisis, and Terrorism: Implication for Regional Integration” and had delegates drawing lessons from the European responses to the economic crisis, refugee issue, and terrorism, and how these affect regional integration. The event also tackled possible areas of cooperation between ALDE and CALD, with the hope of further institutionalizing and and strengthening relations between the two organizations.
