This paper presents a new and general class of strategies for avoiding individual starvation in a system of cyclic processes having alternating non-critical and critical phases with exclusion requirements. The strategies apply to any neighbouring relationship and only make use of distributed control, that is, the strategy for each process only depends on its neighbours.
