The European Kurdish Democratic Societies Congress (Kurdish: Kongreya Civakên Demokratîk a Kurdîstanîyên Ewrupa‎; abbreviated KCD-E; known as the Confederation of Kurdish Associations in Europe or KON-KURD until 2014) is a European Kurdish association, headquartered in Charleroi, Belgium. The member federations are located in several European countries, with some associations from Australia and Canada also belonging to the federation.[1] KCD-E is the biggest organisation of Kurds in Exile. Its members are mostly Kurds from Turkey. According to Der Tagesspiegel, the confederation has close ties to PKK.[2][3]
