Abstract:This article aims to trace South-South cooperation political lineages connecting the Non-Aligned Movement and the IBSA (India, Brazil, South Africa) Forum. In order to determine whether IBSA could be considered the 'heir' to Bandung's principles, the authors analyse the concepts of 'Third World' and 'Global South' as well as their current applicability, the interpretations provided by existing literature on the IBSA grouping, and its member countries' shared views on different issues of the international agenda. The article also considers the historical evolution of 'Southern' diplomatic thought and actions. IBSA's actions and history, as well as its members, are studied to grasp how they are related to the Third World movement in the Cold War. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
