The Alliance of Democrats is a loose partnership of parties all around the world, that was started by the United States Democratic Party, the European Democratic Party (EDP) and the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats(CALD). After the EDP's first political meeting in Rome in February 2005, the parties established the Alliance with offices in Brussels and Washington, DC.

The Alliance is not a true political international in the model of the Socialist International and presently unites parties positioning themselves between social-democrats and conservatives. While the Alliance has not published an official manifesto, it mainly consists of political parties that are broadly speaking centre right or centre-left. What has been published by the Alliance, however, seems to point in the direction of a more right-wing stance compared to the Liberal International on issues of international trade deregulation and foreign policy and more to the left of it on economic policy and welfare.[1]

Members of the Alliance include both members of the Centrist Democrat International (such as the Christian Democrat Party of Chile and the Democratic Union of Catalonia) and the Liberal International (such as most members of theCouncil of Asian Liberals and Democrats), as well as former members of Socialist International (the Indian National Congress), Israel's relatively new Kadima party, and conservative parties such as the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia and the Democratic Party of Serbia, which is also member of the International Democrat Union.

The Alliance is co-chaired by François Bayrou, Francesco Rutelli and Ellen Tauscher, while since 2008 Gianni Vernetti, who is also co-president of the Italian Liberal Group, is the Alliance's coordinator.[2]

The alliance of democrats also contains many parties that are both centre right and centre left and oppose the social international for example
