Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC)
As the oldest United Nations body, the Committee on Disarmament and International Security (DISEC) has perhaps the most diverse mission. Focusing on emerging problems across the world, from arms trafficking in the Sudan, to post-soviet nuclear disarmament in the Ukraine, there is no problem too large, nor any conflict too heated, for DISEC to handle.
This year, the Office of the Secretary-General has tasked the DISEC with affirming its mission in two separate problem-spaces:
1. Illegal Arms Trafficking
2. Disarment of Nations in Ethnic Conflict
This assembly draws its power from the consensus and compromise of its many delegates; DISEC is inclusive and accessible to beginners and experienced delegates alike.
To be eligible for individual awards, delegates in GA committees are required to submit a position paper. Each delegate should submit a one-page paper, single spaced, to their chair via email by 11:59 pm on November 24th, 2016. The delegate with the best research will also receive the Position Paper Award. For a sample paper, please click here.
