Non-Aligned Movement
The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM)
is a non-hierarchical movement of 118 members representing the interests and priorities of developing countries. A product of the Cold War, NAM member states consider themselves not formally aligned with or against any major power bloc. The movement’s main objectives include the defence of multilateralism, the standards that govern international law and international relations and the maintenance of international peace and security.
In total, the states of NAM represent two-thirds of all UN members and 55% of the world’s population.

In line with its tenth principle concerning the respect of justice and international obligations, the Non-Aligned Movement has continued to engage positively with the International Criminal Court to try individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. NAM has assumed a particularly active role with regard to the definition of the crime of aggression and in preparations for the upcoming Review Conference in 2010.

NAM has four major working groups: the Working Group on Disarmament, the Working Group on Peacekeeping Operations, the Working Group on Sixth Committee Matters (where the crime of aggression and review conference are discussed) and the Working Group for the Restructuring of the Security Council.
