Disarmament and International Security Committee
Deliberation on the provision of advanced warfare equipment
in states of ongoing conflict
One of the six committees in the UN General Assembly, and a constant in all Model United Nations Conferences, DISEC deals with and finds solutions to problems regarding security and weapons across the world. All 193 member states of the UN attend this committee, and topics covered in this committee can concern nuclear weapons, weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, arms trades, and regional security. The main goal of this committee is to protect, maintain, and strengthen international peace and security from various threats, originating from both state actors and non-state actors.
In a world where technology advances at an exponential rate, it is crucial that in situations of ongoing conflict, advanced warfare equipment is used judicially, as if it is misutilised, it can have disastrous consequences. Over the numerous committee sessions, we want delegates to delve into and deliberate on the situations which actually warrant the provision of such equipment and which Nations require such aid and assistance during times of conflict. The committee will also address diplomatic agendas that pertain to weapons and areas of militant concern, and will aim to increase international security and promote disarmament on a global level.
Hello, My name is Yashovat and it gives me great pleasure to serve as the Chairperson of DISEC this year. I am currently in the 12th grade, pursuing the ISC curriculum at School and am interested in the field of Biology, especially CRISPR technology. I have participated in and helped organise various MUNs over the course of the past couple of years, and my Model UN experiences have been pivotal to help me think critically about global action, find my voice as an advocate for real-world issues I care about, and foster connections that I know will last a lifetime. Aside from Model UN, I indulge in debating at School and my other interests also include reading and playing the piano. On the sports front, I have represented the School in basketball and enjoy playing football. I am also the Chief-Editor of the School’s weekly newspaper and a School Prefect. My aim coming into this conference is to, as a chairperson, be able to create as engaging an experience as possible and ensure that all delegates in my committee have a memorable time while at the conference. I’m excited to share my experiences with you and I look forward to getting to know you, and your vision for our world.
