The Movement for a Europe of Liberties and Democracy (French: Mouvement pour l'Europe des libertés et de la démocratie), abbreviated to MELD, was a national-conservative political party at European level founded in 2011, composed of parties belonging to the Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group in the European Parliament, with the notable absence of the UK Independence Party, which was a member of the EFD, but not of the MELD. In 2012, MELD received a grant from the European Parliament of €621,482.[3] Its affiliated political foundation was the Foundation for a Europe of Liberties and Democracy (FELD), which received a grant of €412,361. Both were headquartered at 18, rue Cler, in Paris, France.[4] The president of the party was Jacek Wlosowicz.

MELD was dissolved in 2015 by the European Parliament due to misuse of EU funding.[5][6][7]
