The ‘Working’ Non-Aligned Movement: Between Belgrade, Cairo, and Baku – The NAM’s Leadership Visibility

The key to effectiveness for group work, including on the multilateral level, remains clear working dynamics, efficient management, cohesive ‘professional’ culture fortified by intensive interaction geared towards common goals that are set through a participatory and intellectually rigorous process of harmonisation divergences, and ensuring genuine collective ownership. The chapter argues that these concepts, that may appear complex in this wording, are in fact simple to apply. They are arguably best demonstrated at the collegiate level of delegates attending as experts on the subject matter. However, they can also be emulated at higher levels, if the same approach is followed. In such an instant, the ‘working-level’ NAM may make the whole forum ‘working’ best to achieve its ideals, which are most needed in today’s world and in the current state of multilateralism.
