CALL FOR PUBLICATION

 

BANDUNG-BELGRADE-HAVANA IN GLOBAL HISTORY AND PERSPECTIVE:

The Deployment of Bandung Constellation towards a Shared Global Future

 

Idea

It is a part of the publication project of books to be launched in the conference “Bandung-Belgrade-Havana” that will take place in Indonesia between November 3 and 13, 2022 (the exact dates will be announced soon).

 

Concept

Bandung, Belgrade and Havana Conferences were the major steps of the deployment of a global political movement, which may be called “Bandung Constellation”, as an alternative to a hegemonic global system, which may be called “Western Galaxy”. For the notion of these two entities, see Darwis Khudori’s essay "THE RISE OF ASIA AND THE POLARISATION OF GLOBAL FORCES: WESTERN GALAXY AND BANDUNG CONSTELLATION - A sketch of ideas for a global future" published in English, French and Greek. See the English version for example at DEFEND DEMOCRACY PRESS http://www.defenddemocracy.press/the-rise-of-asia-and-the-polarisation-of-global-forces-western-galaxy-and-bandung-constellation-by-darwis-khudori/

 

The Rise of Asia, the recurrent crisis of capitalism, the pandemic Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine crisis offer an opportunity to prepare a global movement towards a new civilisation of post-capitalism, post-productivism, post-consummerism, post-patriarchy…
