Centrist Democrat International

Historia

The International Center Democratic Party was founded in 1961 under the name of World Union of Christian Democrats (WUCD). It was created by the New International Teams, predecessor organization to the European Union of Christian Democrats (EUCD), the Christian Democrat Organization of America (CDOA) and the Christian Democratic Union of Central Europe (CDUCE). In 1999 it adopted its present name, Centrist Democrat International.

The changes on the international stage since 1989, with the end of the confrontation between east and west that had threatened mankind since the end of the Second World War, the creation of new independent states, the struggles for democracy and the globalization at the start of this new millennium are providing society with new opportunities as well as challenges, both in national and international communities, for people to live in peace, freedom, justice and solidarity.
