Third-Worldism is a tendency within left-wing political thought to regard the division between First World developed countries and Third World developing countries as being of primary political importance. Third-Worldism supports Third World nations and national liberation movements against Western nations and their proxies. Third-Worldism is in many cases connected with movements such as Irish republicanism, Black Nationalism, Pan-Africanism, Pan-Americanism, Pan-Arabism, Ba'athism, African socialism, Arab socialism, and Maoism.
Key figures in the Third Worldist movement include Michel Aflaq, Salah al-Din al-Bitar, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Frantz Fanon, Walter Rodney, Ahmed Ben Bella, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Muammar Gaddafi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Ali Shariati, Andre Gunder Frank, Samir Amin and Simon Malley.
The 1955 Bandung Conference in Indonesia, and the resultant formation of the Non-Aligned Movement represented a significant venue for Third World politics during the twentieth century. From the 1970s, national liberation movements such as the Palestine Liberation Organization and the African National Congress have been causes célèbres of the movement.
The 1960s and 1970s New Left trend led to an explosion of support for Third-Worldism, especially after the perceived failure of revolutionary movements in the First World. Among the New Left groups and movements associated with Third-Worldism were Monthly Review and the New Communist Movement. More recently, Third-Worldism has become a powerful force in the World Social Forum, (particularly since the 2004 forum in Mumbai) and in the Cairo Anti-War Conference.
