Chapter Summary

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) represents the interests of states in international relations and in the United Nations (UN) which do not wish to belong to any military alliance and stand for the end of colonialism, the realization of the right of self-determination of peoples (Self-Determination, Right of), equal rights of races and peoples, nuclear disarmament and peaceful international cooperation of all peoples and states. Inside and outside the UN, the group of non-aligned states appears to the great powers as a great political challenge. This is as true today as it was during the East-West-Conflict and the Cold War. The NAM is of the opinion that the world today is still far from being a peaceful, just and secure place and that the main purposes of the Movement are still relevant.

Keywords: Cold War; East-West-Conflict; Non-Aligned Movement (NAM); United Nations (UN)
