ISESCO was founded by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in May 1979. With 52 member states, ISESCO is one of the largest international Islamic organizations and specializes in the fields of education, science and culture. Its headquarters are in Rabat, Morocco. The Director General is Dr. Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri, who is also the Secretary General of Federation of the Universities of the Islamic World (FUIW).
The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) BESTDOC portal uses e- and m-signature and authentication technology that aims to be at the forefront in the mobile signature world with an objective to be the common Islamic digital market with the highest number of m-ID users all over the world.
The ISESCO BESTDOC portal is the first ever mobile signing and authentication service in the ISESCO countries and globally represents best practices for innovative document management systems for international organisations.
It aims to export the paperless society experience and enable sharing and m-signing of documents in any format, underpinned by strong user authentication.
According to the OIC, ISESCO’s objectives are “to strengthen and promote cooperation among
the Member States in the fields of education, science culture and communication; consolidate understanding among peoples inside and outside Member States; contribute to world peace and security through various means; publicize the true image of Islam and Islamic culture; promote dialogue among civilizations, cultures and religions; and encourage cultural interaction and foster cultural diversity in the Member States, while preserving cultural identity and intellectual integrity.”
