BANDUNG-BELGRADE-HAVANA IN GLOBAL HISTORY AND PERSPECTIVE : What dream, what reality, what project for a global future ?, International, and Multidiciplinary Conference. "The conference will be organised in plenary and parallel sessions around the “legacy” and “beyond the legacy” of the Bandung Conference. It is in this spirit that the conference is also dedicated to the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Belgrade Non-alignment Conference and the 55th anniversary of the Havana Tricontinental Conference, which were the most outstanding follow-ups of Bandung. Moreover, it could be an honour for Indonesia as the host of commemoration since the three conferences bear testimony to the key role of Soekarno, besides other Bandung leaders, in the history of international struggle for global peace, justice and prosperity".
