India, Nigeria, and the Congo Crisis, 1960-65 Non-aligned Quest for Global Peace

Author Name: Raja Joyce Singh | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

After the great devastation of the Second World War, 51 world leaders established an international organization for the purpose of maintaining peace and security in the world by preventing escalation of conflicts, promoting mutual cooperation, and developing friendly relations among them, called the United Nations (UN).

Despite its noble aims and objectives, the UN could not maintain total global peace, because many sporadic individual skirmishes still took place among nations. One such conflict began in the Congo during 1960s, which later escalated into an international crisis and made the Big Powers take sides for a major showdown.

At this juncture, to save the international organization, the Non-Aligned countries, under the leadership of India and Nigeria, came to the fore to support the UN in its efforts for peace-keeping in the Congo and preventing the Super Powers from getting involved in this conflict.

All these details, events of the crisis, and the role of the Non-Aligned nations towards its diffusion are discussed in this book.
