BANDUNG-BELGRADE-HAVANA COMMEMORATIVE CONFERENCE AND G20 SUMMIT

Dimanche 13 février 2022, par DK // BANDUNG-BELGRADE-HAVANA CONFERENCE

A commemorative conference of :
The 66th Anniversary of the Bandung Asian-African Conference
The 60th Anniversary of the Belgrade Non-Alignment Conference
The 55th Anniversary of the Havana Tricontinental Conference

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bandung-Belgrade-Havana Conference is rescheduled from October 25-30, 2021 to some time between November 3 and 13, 2022. By chance, Indonesia is the president of G20 from December 1, 2021 to November 30, 2022, and the 17th G20 Summit will take place in Bali on November 15-16, 2022. So, it would be historical for the Bandung Spirit Network of Scholars and Activists of Social Movements that its conference is to take place at the proximity in space and time of the G20 Summit. It would be interesting to observe how Indonesia, initiator of the Bandung Conference in 1955, became president of G20 in 2022. It would also be a great opportunity for conference participants to witness, and to watch, the conjunction of convergent and/or divergent global forces in a certain moment of history.

LA FRANCE ET BANDUNG

Mercredi 20 janvier 2021, par DK // PUBLICATION

Darwis Khudori, La France et Bandung : les batailles diplomatiques entre la France, l’Afrique du Nord et l’Indochine en Indonésie (1950-1955). Avec une préface de Hugues Tertrais. Paris, Les Indes Savantes, 2021, 16x24 cm, 310 pages, ISBN : 978-2-84654-541-9
La France a été très concernée par la Conférence de Bandung car cette réunion afro-asiatique devait discuter des problèmes et des intérêts communs en Afrique et en Asie dans les domaines économiques, sociaux et culturels, mais aussi en matière de souveraineté nationale, de colonialisme et de racisme. Et cette réunion était organisée sans impliquer les puissances coloniales, dont la France. Cependant, à la veille de la Conférence, la France a été impliquée dans deux problèmes coloniaux épineux. L’un est l’Afrique du Nord dont les entités territoriales (Algérie, Maroc, Tunisie) se sont engagées ensemble dans des mouvements de libération nationale contre l’occupation coloniale française.
