The struggle for self-determination and independence in the Portuguese colonies benefited from an international solidarity promoted by different entities, namely governments, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations, such as churches, trade unions or political, student and women’s organizations. The solidarity was instigated by different ideological commitments across the national boundaries and aimed different goals.

In opposition to the efforts lately carried out to study other examples of international solidarity, namely regarding the anti-apartheid movement, in what concerned the Portuguese colonies the subject has not yet been the center of attention. In the absence of comprehensive analysis, it is not possible to find yet a detailed account of the role of the international solidarity in the support to the struggle for self-determination and independence of Portuguese colonies. The main feature of the existing academic literature is the dispersion owing to the lack of a global account.
