Building a new internationalism

When New Internationalist was founded in the 1970s, the world was divided into three camps: capitalist, communist and non-alligned. For the latter group, also called the Third World, internationalism was a way of making the world more equal. It took all sorts of forms, from Che Guevara travelling to Africa to help foment revolution to the establishment of United Nation's Committee on Trade and Development by 77 poor countries.

That tradition is in tatters in our globalized world. In this issue of New Internationalist, we look at what can be salvaged to build a 21st-century internationalism.
