Title:Africa's Contribution to the Non-Aligned Movement
Author:Ali, Shanti Sadiq
Periodical:Indian Journal of African Studies
Geographic term:Africa

Abstract:In spite of deep schisms within the OAU and recurrent intra-African conflicts, the articulate minority of African leaders has acted positively within the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). The African position from the start contributed to strengthening the high priority accorded the anticolonial and antiracist struggle. Closer economic cooperation among the non-aligned States and the struggle for economic independence have also been among recurrent African concerns. The author examines the role of African member States of the OAU at the successive Non-Aligned summit conferences, from the second summit in Cairo in 1964 to the eighth in Harare in 1986, their varying perceptions of non-alignment and the major determinants in the making of their respective policies.
