World Zionist Organisation (WZO)
The principal world wide entity of the Zionist movement
The first WZO constitution was adopted at the third Zionist Congress in 1899. Initially, the WZO was based mainly on Zionist delegates from various countries, but representation gradually went over to ideology-based political parties. The WZO institutions operated in Berlin until World War I and moved to London afterwards.
