Although an Afro-Asian partnership that detached itself from colonial and imperial connections to the western world characterized the Bandung conference in 1955, it was not until the conclusion of the cold war and the consolidation of the world through a neoliberal framework that concrete practices around South-South co-operation and development emerged. Neoliberal globalization has placed African countries in precarious positions with market intrusions rendering populations vulnerable. This panel intends to ask, how can we characterize South-South flows in this context, and how different might this context be from North Atlantic capital flows? Are anti-imperialist politics and ideologies relevant for making sense of these flows, or are they neocolonial projects? This panel invites papers that deal with any of the above aspects of South-South flows.
