The International Federation of Liberal Youth (IFLRY) is an international liberal youth organization. It consists of a global membership of national youth organizations. These are often but not exclusively affiliated with political parties that are members of Liberal International.

IFLRY continues the tradition of two predecessors. The first was the World Federation of Liberal and Radical Youth (WFLRY), founded in 1947. WFLRY was also a global organization but most members were active in Europe. This led in 1969 to the separate forming of the European Federation of Liberal and Radical Youth (EFLRY).WFLRY was dissolved in 1978, and EFLRY renamed itself IFLRY, the International Federation of Liberal and Radical Youth. In 2001 the organization was renamed into IFLRY - International Federation of Liberal Youth.

Full members status is held to the European Youth Forum (YFJ) which operates within the Council of Europe and European Union areas and works closely with both these bodies.

Currently the presidency of IFLRY is held by Paola Silva of UCJD-Colombia. The rest of the Bureau includes Bart Woord JD Netherlands, Secretary General, Chris Gallaway YDA USA, Treasurer, and four vice-presidents: Jan Argy Tolentino from KALIPI Philippines, Jelena Spasovic of Serbia, Frederik Ferié from JULIS Germany, and Anihassata Camara from FAL Cote d'Ivoire.

tructure

IFLRY's highest body is the General Assembly, which meets at least every second year. It adopts IFLRY's political platform, the Manifesto, and decides about IFLRY's activities. These are stated in a two-year Programme of Action. The General Assembly also decides o­n the federation's policies by adopting resolutions. Furthermore the General Assembly elects the Bureau and decides upon the budget.

The Executive Committee is composed of o­ne representative from each member organisation and the Bureau. It meets twice a year and takes all policy decisions within the framework of the General Assembly's resolutions.

The IFLRY Bureau consists of a President, a Secretary General, a Treasurer and four Vice-Presidents. The Bureau has the responsibility for IFLRY's day to day management and is elected every two years. The IFLRY Bureau appoints an Executive Director who runs the IFLRY secretariat in London.
