Policy of positive neutrality
Placing a nation or other social grouping in a neutral position rather than siding with existing factions.
Non-aligning has significantly developed since World War II. Many nations have chosen non-alignment as the basis of their foreign policy. While neutrality is non-participation on either side of an armed conflict, non-alignment is not subscribing to one or another of conflicting ideologies, but actively pursuing the freedom of choosing elements of either or neither one.
Non-aligning requires that there be an option of two or more factions which one could chose to side with.
1. Provides a way for individuals, smaller groups or countries to band together to form an additional alternative.

2. Gives a country a way not to permit its territory to be used for military bases of foreign powers.

3. It lets countries make their own decisions.

Counter Claim:
1. In order to be effective each country which is not a major power has to align with a group with power.<2. Non-aligning causes a country to turn inward and to react to situations rather than constructively create solutions.<3. Non-aligning is basically a hostile posture.
