GA-1: Disarmament and International Security Committee

The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) is one of the six main committees of the United Nations General Assembly. As the First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, DISEC intends to maintain international security and deals with issues regarding disarmament and the regulation of the armaments. According to the Article 9 of the Charter of the United Nations, all Member States have equal vote and are eligible as representatives in the committee. Even though DISEC is not authorized to take individual state action or initiate armed intervention, it makes substantive recommendations to the Security Council on the aforementioned matters while promoting the maintenance of global peace and international security.

Throughout the conference, the delegates of the First Committee will be debating upon the topics concerning the insurance of maritime security with a special focus on Somalia, the enhancement of airport security while combating racial segregation and the establishment of transparency in nuclear armament whilst encouraging the reduction of military expenditures.
