ALECSO : A future-oriented organization

Cooperation at the Arab and international levels is part of a comprehensive and integrated strategy that guides ALECSO's activities in its regional and international environment. It reinforces the Organization’s active presence in the Arab and international fora relevant to its fields of action. It also helps to avoid duplications and overlaps with other activities and programs implemented by similar institutions pursuing the same goals and targeting the same beneficiaries.

Today, ALECSO is seeking to reinforce its active presence within the global system, through forging strategic partnerships and implementing purposeful programs that meet its priorities, within a changing world marked by ever-accelerating developments and challenges.


ALECSO is accordingly called on to be a key stakeholder in all initiatives taken at the Arab, regional and international levels, to expand the scope of its influence and outreach in all educational, cultural, scientific and communication fora, and to highlight its contributions and accomplishments in all its fields of competence.
