The Moderate Youth League (Swedish: Moderata ungdomsförbundet [mʊdɛˈrɑ̌ːta ˈɵ̂ŋdʊmsfœrˌbɵndɛt] (audio speaker iconlisten); MUF), officially known in English as the Swedish Young Conservatives, is the youth wing of the Swedish Moderate Party. It is the largest of the youth groups that got support from the Swedish National Board for Youth Affairs in 2009.[3]

The Moderate Youth League is more libertarian-leaning than the Moderate Party. It is generally pro-market, pro-American, pro-Israeli and liberal in social issues such as abortion and gay rights. The group supports making it legal to share files. They also support making alcohol for private purposes. Its official ideologies are liberalism and conservatism.[4]
