The Democratic Alliance of Croats in Vojvodina (Serbian: Демократски Савез Хрвата у Војводини / Demokratski savez Hrvata u Vojvodini; Croatian: Demokratski savez Hrvata u Vojvodini; abbreviation: DSHV / ДСХВ) is a political party of ethnic Croats in the Serbian province of Vojvodina, founded on July 15, 1990.

History[edit]

Over time, some party members were unsatisfied with party's policy, so they separated and formed new Croat parties:

In 2009 DSHV negotiated with another ethnic Croat party from Syrmia region of Vojvodina, the Hrvatska srijemska inicijativa / Hrvatska sremska inicijativa (Croatian Syrmian Initiative). It was planned that HSI and DSHV unite on June 5, 2009 on the meeting in Sremska Mitrovica.[1]
