This article focuses on the breakthroughs in the process of establishing principles of self-managed socialist democracy in the multinational federal state of Yugoslavia, as of October 1971. At Jajce on November 29, 1943, the Anti-Fascist Council of the National Liberation of Yugoslavia laid the foundations of the present Socialist Federal Republic. Another historic step was taken in 1950 when the Law on Workers Management of State Economic Enterprises and Higher Economic Associations was enacted. Now in 1971 has come another major milestone. On June 30 of this year the Federal Assembly adopted 23 amendments to the 1963 Constitution. Speculation as to whether Yugoslavia, following the adoption of the amendments, is a federation or a confederation is irrelevant. Yugoslavia is vitally interested in friendly cooperation and association with all peace-loving forces in the world. And the world should be interested in Yugoslavia exactly as she is--independent, socialist and nonaligned. Consistent application of the policy of nonalignment enables Yugoslavia to have fruitful and open cooperation with her neighbors, based on the principles of independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity, noninterference and mutual understanding.
