Chapter Summary

This conclusion chapter of the book discusses an analysis of the evolution of the Bandung spirit into the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the latter's attempts to affect the dominant discourses on economic development. The issue of the admission of the People's Republic of China and its relevance to world peace was pertinent to the proclamation. It is noted that 'disarmament and the prohibition of the production, experimentation and use of nuclear and thermo-nuclear weapons of war [were] imperative to save mankind and civilization from the fear and prospect of wholesale destruction'. The economic imperative behind Japan's attendance came under intense criticism, even amongst the Japanese themselves. As a member of the Asia-Africa region, Japan's expectations of its own role in the process of economic development, in Asia at least, were enormous, evidently because its participation in the conference was predicated more on economic factors.

Keywords: Asia-Africa region; Japan's role; Non-Aligned Movement (NAM); Republic of China; world peace
