The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is an organisation of states that are not aligned with a superpower. Although it was founded as an organisation in 1961, the most significant milestone on the path that led to the NAM was the Bandung Conference of 1955 where heads of states including Sukarno of Indonesia, Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt, Ho Chi Minh of Vietnam, and many others were brought together. With nearly two-thirds of UN Member States also being members of the NAM, the member states of the Movement contain more than 55% of the world’s population. Membership is particularly concentrated in developing parts of the world such as Africa; every African country except the newly formed South Sudan is a member of the Non-Aligned Movement. The purpose of the NAM was defined in 1979 as to ensure the national independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of non-aligned countries in their struggle against imperialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, and all forms of foreign aggression, occupation, domination, interference or hegemony as well as against great power and bloc politics.
Non-Aligned Movement is apt for experienced delegates.
