WHAT'S A WINNING POLITICAL STRATEGY?

Video

There have been several attempts to advance liberty through a variety of political strategies: creating a liberal political party, influencing members of parliament, shifting the voter base on a specific issue, placing our own Trojan horses within the government. In this panel discussion that took place during Asia Liberty Forum 2017, we ask panelists to share their strategy, and discuss their successes and challenges. Besides campaign approaches, we also ask them to highlight tactics and day to day best practices in engaging with governments for impactful dissemination of our ideas.
