  •  The Arab National Security is a priority issue in the agenda of the joint Arab action, due to its importance at the international level. The Sector seeks to define clear objectives and specific tasks to be implemented and achieved, in view of the critical security conditions of the Arab world at the present time. Therefore, the Arab League Secretary-General, Mr. Amr Moussa (2001-2011) sought to the creation of a new structure for a General Department of Military Affairs pursuant to Resolution 106/1 issued on 1st July 2002, which was renamed as the Arab National Security Sector.

    The Sector is composed of 4 Departments:

    Military Department and Security and Peace Council

    The Arab Mashreq

    The Arab Gulf and Yemen Affairs

    North Africa

    The Horn of Africa and Sudan


  • The Administrative and Financial Affairs Sector seeks to provide administrative, financial and logistical assistance to all sectors of the Secretariat General, missions, centers and offices of the League of Arab States. Its main goal is to appoint, train and qualify human resources  to work for the Secretariat General and its offices abroad, to develop the effective work methods using modern technologies for all the sectors and their representatives abroad. The Sector also prepares and implements the budget of the Secretariat General by using the latest systems and programs to raise efficiency levels and planning schemes. It also prepares administrative and financial studies, projects, plans and programs required by ministerial councils and their affiliated agencies and committees. It also develops training programs, technical applications and translation forms to serve all sectors and employees of the League.


  •  The Political Affairs Sector is one of the Secretariat General Sectors of the League of Arab States, which is concerned with follow-up on political developments at both Arab and international levels, in addition to monitoring the developments in the course of Arab-International relations. This Sector works towards creating a more conductive political environment that prompts further cooperation and coordination among Arab and world countries in all fields for the benefit of the higher interests of the Arab world.

    The Sector has five Departments:  the Multilateral Relations Department, the Africa and Arab-African Cooperation Department, the Europe and Arab European Cooperation Department, the Two Americas Department and the Asia-Australia and Arab - Asian Cooperation Department, in addition to the Coordination and Follow-up Unit.

  • The role of the Arab Media at the political, economic and social levels became of great interest. In 1946, a department was established to take  charge of responding to queries addressed to the League of Arab States and was called "the Department of Information”. In the following years, the Departmentevolved, and its tasks were extended to include informing the public about the League of Arab States and its activities. In 1948, the name of the Department was changed to the “Department of Information and Publishing”, then the "Department of Publicity" in 1952. However, it became the Department of Media in 1959, upon recommendation from the Arab Media Experts Board. The most prominent developmental challenge faced by the Department of Media in the Secretariat General was to change the Department to “Joint Arab Information Apparatus” in 1986, upon a resolution issued by the Council of the League of Arab States, which convened for the first time at the level of Ministers of Information. This was the only time since the establishment of the League of Arab States, at which the Arab League Council authorized the Arab Ministers of Information to convene as a Council of the League of Arab States with the aim  of issuing anumber  of important and urgent resolutions without referring to the Arab League Council. Since then, the development process of the Media Apparatus in the League of Arab States continued until “the  Media and Communication Sector” was established.
