Nasser Youth Movement
The glorious 23 July revolution was a starting point for Egypt 's independence from colonialism and state-building, ،which led to a radical and independent change in the determinants of Egyptian foreign policy, as the late leader Gamal Abdel Nasser saw that the liberation of Egypt was the first stage, on the road to liberation of Asia, Africa and Latin America ( Third World Countries), which is the important stage that followed. He worked to support national liberation movements, and their struggle for independence, while building a balanced dialogue based on respect with the countries of the first world. He also supported the construction of the model of a modern national state, which he applied in Egypt, and Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership was launched to transfer it to the youth of the world.
Why Gamal Abdel Nasser?
The movement took the name of the late leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, given that he is one of the most important leaders for the peoples of developing countries (Africa – Asia – Latin America), in addition to being one of the most unique leadership models. Perhaps, that is why the leader deserved the title of "Abu Africa", which is an affirmation of what was recommended by the Agenda of the African Union 2063, in the first aspiration, where it stipulated the importance of expressing our gratitude and appreciation to the founding fathers of the Organization of African Unity.
Abdel Nasser is also an ideal model as well as a political and historical example of the concept of transformational leadership and the global citizen.In his role as a leader, he sought to support African liberation movements in particular and third world movements in general until it gained its independence. Egypt also contributed to a strong mandate in the establishment of influential international organizations which are as follows in a chronological order:
• The Non-Aligned Movement (1955), which played an important role in the maintenance of international peace and security. The Movement aimed to establish a neutral and independent movement of the policies of the major powers - for Member States expressing their vision towards international issues and developmental issues.
• Afro-Asian Peoples' Solidarity Organization (1957), which since its foundation fought for peace, stood firm against colonialism, apartheid and wars. It also supported the struggle of peoples in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
• Organization of African Unity (1963), which is the first organization to constitute a clear framework for African integration, later known as the African Union Africa Agenda (2063), in its first item entitled "Voices of African Peoples ", expressed deep appreciation to the founding fathers of the Organization of African Unity for their legacy of liberal successes that eliminated slavery, colonialism and apartheid.
• Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which arose following the arson of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969 for cooperation among Islamic countries, is now the second intergovernmental organization in the world after the United Nations in terms of the number of Member States.
