Questo articolo analizza le relazioni tra l’Internazionale comunista (Comintern) e l’Internazionale operaia e socialista (ios) e i tre tentativi di cooperazione dagli anni Venti agli anni Quaranta. Le posizioni del dibattito interno all’ios riguardo al Comintern erano allineate a profonde contese ideologiche tra socialisti per definire la loro ideologia, se identificarsi con la democrazia o considerare tattiche più rivoluzionarie e collaborazione coi comunisti. All’inizio l’identità socialista soffrì per questa confusione, ma le azioni del Comintern e il suo successore imposero una netta separazione, definendo l’ideologia e l’internazionalismo socialdemocratici nel dopoguerra.

The article analyses the relations between the Communist International (Comintern) and the Labour and Socialist International (lsi) and the three attempts at cooperation from the 1920s to the 1940s. The debate in the lsi over the Comintern aligned with a deeper ideological struggle among socialists to define their ideology, whether to identify with democracy or to consider more revolutionary tactics and cooperation with the communists. At first socialist identity suffered from this confusion, but the actions of the Comintern and its successor pushed a clear separation, defining social democratic ideology and internationalism in the postwar era.

Abstract

The article analyses the relations between the Communist International (Comintern) and the Labour and Socialist International (lsi) and the three attempts at cooperation from the 1920s to the 1940s. The debate in the lsi over the Comintern aligned with a deeper ideological struggle among socialists to define their ideology, whether to identify with democracy or to consider more revolutionary tactics and cooperation with the communists. At first socialist identity suffered from this confusion, but the actions of the Comintern and its successor pushed a clear separation, defining social democratic ideology and internationalism in the postwar era.
