Heine Argues for Active Non-Alignment in “TI Observer” Article

Ambassador Jorge Heine, Research Professor at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, published an article in the latest issue of “TI Observer,” a publication of the Taihe Institute, a Beijing think tank, which draws on his recently published book El No Alineamiento Activo y América Latina: una doctrina para el nuevo siglo (Active Non-Alignment and Latin America: A Doctrine for the New Century).

In his article, titled “Latin America and the Active Non-Alignment Option,” Heine discusses the need for Latin America to shift with the changing tides of a “Post Western World” and sets forth a strategy for the region expounded in his latest book: the Active Non-Alignment option. As he states, “the Active Non-Alignment option draws on the honorable tradition of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), of autonomy and independence from the big powers, based on the principles of political self-determination, mutual respect of sovereignty, non-aggression, non-interference in internal affairs, and equality.”

The full article can be read on Taihe Institute’s website.
