Abstract

The article examines the peculiarities of Suriname's political history related to the influence of the Comintern and Profintern. The Profintern took a leading role in the formation and development of the left-wing forces of this South American country. Anton de Kom (Anton, Antoine, Adek, Papa de Com, 1898—1945), closely associated with the Communist Party of the Netherlands, became the “Father of Suriname’s Independence”. The article pays a particular attention to the role of trade unions and left-wing parties, including the communist ones, in the periods of decolonization and military rule. The impact of intercommunal interaction and creolization on political processes in Suriname is also discussed.
