50 Years of OIC Cooperation: Taking a Future Perspective by Learning from the Past
Date : 26 December 2019

The OIC is marking a big milestone with a pretty strong record of achievements. It has demonstrated the capacity to successfully fulfill its mission, which was given to it fifty years ago in Rabat, Morocco. Five decades have seen much progress in OIC cooperation. Today the underlying architecture of OIC cooperation is visible, and the OIC member countries are becoming increasingly involved in seeking common interests and supporting cooperation as one of the ways for coping with many challenges.

Nevertheless, the OIC remains to be in need of a good deal of patient work, in order to help the Muslim world to face the challenges of the 21st century. This report offers a short analysis of the evolution and main mechanisms of OIC cooperation. It takes stock of the Organisation’s past achievement, reviews its capabilities to meet the existing challenges and highlights some issues that may influence the OIC’s ability to enhance its effectiveness in the future.
