Karl Czernetz was an Austrian politician of the Social Democratic Party of Austria, where he was regarded as a "party ideologist". He attended the 1963 and 1969 Bilderberg conferences.


Karl Czernetz was politically active in the Social Democratic Party (SDAP) from 1924, while he was still attending the Graphic Teaching and Research Institute (training as a photographer) in Vienna. He started out in the First Republic as an education officer for the Socialist Workers' Youth (SAJ) in Leopoldstadt, the 2nd district of Vienna. After the SDAP was banned in 1934, he continued his political activities with the illegal Revolutionary Socialists (RS) and was arrested several times.

After the "Anschluss" of Austria, he fled to Paris in 1938 and then lived in London from 1939 to 1945. There he ran the London Bureau as a party office of the AVOES as a member of the foreign mission of the Austrian socialists (AVOES) together with Oscar Pollak and played a decisive role in shaping the Austrian exile policy. In 1939 he married his wife Margit in London.

After the war, Czernetz returned to Austria with his wife and was a member of the federal party executive of theSocial Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ) since 1946. He took over the management of the newly created training department of the SPÖ, which was expanded in 1948 under his leadership to the Socialist Education Center. He also headed the education department of the SPÖ Vienna and the Vienna party school. Then he acted as International Secretary of the SPÖ.

In addition to his work as a member of the National Council (nine legislative periods from November 1949 until his death), Czernetz was also active at the European level: 1952-1955 he acted as an Austrian observer at the Council of Europe, from 1956 until his death as an Austrian delegate in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe; from 1975 until his death he was President of this Assembly.

From 1963 until his death he was editor-in-chief of the SPÖ monthly magazine Die Zukunft, which cemented his reputation as a "party ideologist".
