Croatian World Congress (CWC) is a supra-partisan umbrella organization with more than 45 member organizations. It is a voluntary association of Croatian associations and bodies in the Federal Republic of Germany. As an umbrella association, CWC promotes the interests of its members and represents them at the state and other institutions and organizations. Using its super-regional structures CWC is working on networking Croats throughout Germany with the intention to link the common interests and expectations.
Croatian World Congress in Germany (CWC) was founded in 1994 in Frechen near Cologne. Previously, due to the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the war in Croatia in 1993, the Croatian World Congress was founded in Zagreb on the global level. Following the example of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), the main motives for the establishment Croatian World Congress were networking Croats around the world, humanitarian aid for the country and encouraging Croats living abroad to return home. The first project in which the CWC focused was a humanitarian aid for refugees from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Help was provided with fundraising and sensitization of German and European public for war or for international intervention through countless protests. In 1995, after the war, humanitarian aid in the form of regeneration was still in the focus.
