Titoism is described as the post-World War II policies and practices associated with Josip Broz Tito during the Cold War, with the opposition to the Soviet Union.
It is considered as a doctrine represented Josip Broz Tito's Yugoslav doctrine in Cold War international politics. Its background was the Yugoslav Partisans' liberation of Yugoslavia independently of, or without much help from, the Red Army, resulting in Yugoslavia being the only Eastern European country to remain "socialist, but independent" after World War II and resisting Soviet Union pressure to become a member of the Warsaw Pact. The term was originally used by the government of the Soviet Union to denote it as a heresy. Today it is used to refer to Yugo-nostalgia.
