Leaders of political parties from 9 countries in Asia convened in Bangkok to discuss the new wave of populism, authoritarianism and extremism now gripping the region and the world. The political parties are members of CALD, a regional network of liberal and democratic political parties in Asia. The results of the CALD discussions in Bangkok will be presented to Liberal International (LI). In particular, CALD has proposed that the Manifesto must tackle the issues of inequalities and social injustice, which are relevant to Asians and have contributed to the rise of illiberalism.
