General Assembly

As stipulated by its Statute, IRCICA's organisational set-up comprises the General Assembly, the Governing Board and the Director General.

 

In accordance with the Statute of the Centre which was revised and approved by the Sixth Islamic Summit Conference (Dakar, Senegal, 1991) in line with the Framework Statute of the Subsidiary Organs of the OIC, the Islamic Commission for Economic, Cultural and Social Affairs, a specialised committee of the OIC which meets annually, acts as the Joint General Assembly of the Subsidiary Organs of the OIC, hence as the General Assembly of IRCICA. Before this revision, the Centre did not embody a General Assembly.

 

The Islamic Commission as the General Assembly of IRCICA examines the annual activity programs, budget proposals and final accounts of the Centre and submits them to the approval of the Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers.
