This article discusses the emergence of Eurocommunism as a challenge to the Soviet-centric international communist movement. There are two contradictory qualities that have distinguished the international communist movement. One has been the constant efforts by the Soviet Union to subordinate the interests of overseas communist parties to those of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union; the other has been the equally consistent effort of these parties to oppose such Sovietization, and hence to question the Soviet Union's leading role in international communism. The results of the recent Conference of European Communist Parties in Berlin, Germany show that a third tendency could be observed in the international relations of the communist movement -- that is the export of what has come to be known as Eurocommunism from Europe to the Soviet Union.
