With all 193 UN members, the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) is at the forefront of ensuring international peace on concerns that range from the small arms trade to nuclear proliferation and cover regions from the Arctic Circle to the digital world of cyber security. It deals with disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community, seeking solutions to the challenges that come with maintaining international security. As DISEC cannot enforce any legally binding decisions or direct interventions, it tackles international security concerns through their global influence, promotion of cooperative arrangements, creation of countless peace treaties, and insightful recommendations that broaden the scope of the UN.
DISEC is a beginner committee, suitable for delegates of all skill levels. Position papers are highly encouraged, especially for anyone wishing to be considered for an award.
Any questions, concerns or position papers can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Position papers are due on Saturday, November 2 at 11:59 p.m. unless an extension is granted by the committee staff.
