KREPP, Stella Paresa. Between the Cold War and the Global South: Argentina and Third World Solidarity in the Falklands/Malvinas Crisis. Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.60, pp.141-160. ISSN 2178-1494.

This article looks at Argentine attempts to mobilize the Third World support by framing the Falklands/Malvinas War as a North-South conflict. Despite fundamental ideological divisions, the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Non-Aligned Movement offered support to Argentina, while the NATO powers - the European Economic Community (EEC) and the United States − backed Great Britain. The Falklands/Malvinas was thus a conflict where nationalist agendas linked up with global narratives of decolonization and the Global South.

Keywords : Malvinas; Global South Atlantic; Third World; Argentina.
