Disarmament & International Security Committee (DISEC)

DISEC, the first committee of the General Assemblies, deals primarily with international security issues. The committee seeks to promote global peace by investigating various global security threats and facilitating solutions. Specifically, the committee focuses on cooperative arrangements and the regulation of armaments. At a time of heightened tensions between Russia, China and the West, the potential for conflicts that threaten global security to emerge is greater than ever. Additionally, contemporary issues like the collapse of the Iran nuclear deal and the recent developments in the North Korean nuclear programs open up a variety of potential topics beyond already established ones. Participating in DISEC allows delegates to engage with issues of international security from a wide variety of global viewpoints.
