About PADEE-WHIA

The World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association (PADEE-WHIA) is an interparliamentary organization of the Greek diaspora bringing together legislators of Greek origin from around the world. It was first established in 1996 and was formally established as an Association under Greek law in 2005. The purposes of PADEE-WHIA pursuant to Article 3 of its Statute are as follows:

  1. To Build relations and communication among members of legislator who are of Hellenic origin in non-Greek speaking countries.
  2. To strengthen relations of friendship and co-operation between Greece and the respective countries of the Association’s members and their Parliament.
  3. To bring forth and promote the principles of Greek language and Hellenic culture in their respective countries.

Additionally, one of our core roles as an inter-Parliamentary group is to provide professional development opportunities and networking for our members and associates across the world.
