The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is an international organization dedicated to representing the interests and aspirations of developing countries.
In the early 21st century, the movement had 120 member states.
NAM was founded and held its first conference (the Belgrade Conference) in 1961 under the leadership of Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia.
