President of ARTIS (Europe) awarded 2015 Liberal International Prize for Freedom

At their recent Congress in Rotterdam, Liberal International, the world-wide family of more than 120 liberal political parties voted to award the 2015 Prize for Freedom to John, Lord Alderdice, a Past President of Liberal International and currently President of ARTIS (Europe) Ltd.

The LI Prize for Freedom is a prestigious award whose previous laureates have included Cori Aquino, Mary Robinson, Vaclav Havel, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, Aung San Suu Kyi, Benazir Bhutto and a clutch of other Presidents and Nobel Laureates from around the world.

LI decided to make the award in recognition of Lord Alderdice’s work on violent political conflict in various parts of the world over many years and arrangements are being made for the 2015 Prize for Freedom to be presented to him at a ceremony later this year. At that time we will be able to post the citation and a more detailed article.
