The World Hazara Council (WHC) is the international organisation that represents Hazara communities around the world. The WHC is a non-partisan and non-political organisation with the aim of promoting the cultural, social and civil rights of the Hazara people and to advocate on their behalf in media, governments and civil society organisations. The WHC is the umbrella body that aspires to represent the diverse Hazara communities and organisations around the world and facilitate greater cooperation between them.

The World Hazara Council was formally inaugurated in early 2013 following two years of consultation with an extensive network of Hazara activists and civil society organisations from across the globe. The first meeting of the WHC took place on 21 April 2013 in Vienna.  There were sixty-one participants  representing their communities from all over the world including Europe, the US, Canada, and Australia.
