disarmament and international security COMMITTEE



The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) is the first committee of the General Assembly of the United Nations. It deals with disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community, and seeks out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime. 


It considers all disarmament and international security matters within the scope of the Charter or relating to the powers and functions of any other organ of the United Nations; the general principles of cooperation in the maintenance of international peace and security, as well as principles governing disarmament and the regulation of armaments; promotion of cooperative arrangements and measures aimed at strengthening stability through lower levels of armaments.


This committee's chairs and topics will be announced in due course. In the meantime, we would recommend that you consult the Best Delegate website for a detailed summary of the committee's history and mandate, as well as potential topics.
