About This Book

The 1955 Bandung Conference was a meeting of 29 Asian and African nations that sought to draw on Asian and African nationalism and religious traditions to forge a new international order that was neither communist nor capitalist. It led six years later to the non-aligned movement. On the 50th anniversary of the landmark conference, a panel of specialists converged in a Singapore workshop to examine the intellectual, social, and political legacies of the Asian-African meeting. The result is a collection of papers now presented in this volume. Drawing on research in area studies, diplomatic history, and international relation, the panelists argue that the Bandung Conference had a lasting normative influence on the contemporary regional order of Asia, and that it underlies the diplomatic principles of present-day Asian international relations.
