During the past few decades the non-aligned movement has come to be recognised as the voice of the Third World in the international arena. In addition, the aim of securing the peace of the world recreates a more cohesive co operation among the Third World countries themselves if their organisation within the movement is to be effective. It is in the light of the above that this study seeks to present the evolution of the movement through the analysis of its commitments, and the resolutions which emanated from its major conferences. The theoretical aspects of non-alignment and the points necessary to enable a country to achieve the ideal and goal of non-alignment, such as socio-economic and political development, are discussed in the introduction. In Chapter One, the history of the movement in terms of the development of its ideas and potential lines of co ordination are presented, with particular emphasis on the international circumstances around which the movement was established. The evolution of the movement since the Bandung conference in 1955 and the development in its thinking and membership are points dealt with in Chapter Two. The changing priorities of the movement in addressing itself more closely to economic problems of its member countries and the Third World in general are discussed in Chapter Three, with particular proposals in the major areas of reform for a new international economic order. The revitalization of one of the original principles of the non-aligned movement in supporting liberation movements in Third World countries is the subject of Chapter Four. The last Chapter concentrates on the contribution of one particular country, Iraq, to the non-aligned movement.
