ABOUT THE WORLD HARKI CONGRESS
” All harkis must act towards each other in a spirit of brotherhood “
The World Harki Congress is the organization that defends harkis and harki associations wherever they are in the world. It defends their interests with governments, parliaments and international organisations. The WHC represents the plurality of the Harki question. The WHC is Republican and politically neutral.
The sentence (with reference to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) all harkis must act towards each other in a spirit of brotherhood, sums up the fondation of the WHC well. The WHC intends to be in the forefront in defending the rights of the Harkis and their descendants around the world.
The World Harki Congress has set itself the task of exposing the historical reality of the Harki issue through the “Charter of the Harki Question”. The legitimacy of the Charter is based on the ” indisputable historical facts “ .
The main objective of the WHC is to have this charter recognized and ratified by any natural or legal person wishing to engage in dialogue with the Harkis in order to work towards an amicable resolution. The WHC’s mission is to inform the Harkis about natural or legal persons who have refused to ratify this charter, whatever their motives.

The World Harki Congress awards each year “The Harki Prize”. An independent committee composed of personalities representative of the Harkis has the task of honouring a political figure in the world for his action in favour of resolving the Harki issue.
Each individual or legal entity can support the WHC. To do so, she must be a member of the Friends of the World Harki Congress, whose only condition is to ratify the charter of the Harki issue.
Once a year the World Harki Congress presents its actions at the award of the Harki Prize. He gave the floor to the French and Algerian authorities, so that they themselves can explain what they had accomplished in the past year and what they intended to accomplish in the coming year.
