The European socialist states' assistance to countries and liberation movements in Africa, Asia and Latin America was called "Internationalism" - in Cuba Internacionalismo - or "International Solidarity". In this encounter, we will explore that world of politico-economic connections. Our FWF-research project: Entanglements Cuba-GDR: mobilities, exchanges, circulations within the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance ( has investigated inter-continental personal flows as an expression of such "internationalist" practices in the socialist world. This resuming conference will look into situations where such personal flows created situations of entanglement or, alternatively, where such encounters led to conflict and disruption.
