This book sheds new light on the role of neutral states and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in the global Cold War. The volume places the neutrals and the NAM in the context of the Cold War and demonstrate the links between the East, the West and the so-called 'Third World'. This book provides the first detailed comparative analysis of the unusual partnership between the main European neutral states and NATO. Neutrality and alliance membership are fundamentally incompatible, but through the vehicle of NATO’s post-Cold War partnerships the European neutral states and NATO have found a way to bridge this gap and cooperate with one another. a general feeling that it had been quite a while since the neutral or non-aligned European countries had met with each other to dis-cuss the current shape of their policies and the future of neutral-ity and non-alignment in general.

Third World countries were already affected by superpower pressures before the emergence of the NAM. This raises the question of neutralism before the actual NAM, which was addressed in panel 1.

The chapter also reviews how the European neutral states’ foreign and security policies have adapted since the end of the Cold. The chapter also reviews existing academic literature on neutrality and the European neutral states, noting that while quite a lot has been written on the changing character of neutrality and on the impact of European Union membership on Austria, Finland, Ireland and Sweden’s foreign and security policies, the European neutral states’ post. Between the Blocs, published in , examines the phenomenon of Europe's neutral analysis of the phenomenon of Europe's natural and non-aligned states. It features many of the pre-eminent scholars and political figures who have crafted the shape and meaning of the modern policy of neutrality and nonalignment in contemporary Europe.   This book sheds new light on the foreign policies, roles, and positions of neutral states and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in the global Cold War. The volume places the neutral states and the NAM in the context of the Cold War and demonstrates the links between the East, the West, and the so-called Third World.
