This was the name given to the first international African & Asian conference first held in Bandung , Indonesia in 1955. Other conferences concerning the anti colonial struggle across Africa and Asia were held in London in 1900 and in Manchester in 1945.

The purpose is to demonstrate a historical continuity to the ideals and aspirations of those conferences. One fundamental question may be as far as nation building is concerned: How far have we traveled from Bandung 1955? Where & how do we go forward from here?
