Disarmament and International Security Committee

Agenda: Illicit trade of small arms and light weaponry with special emphasis on Latin America.

DISEC (Disarmament and International Security Committee) is one of the 6 committees that make up the United Nations General Assembly. The committee deals with various problems and works mainly on the goals of disarmament and reducing the number of weapons in the world. Furthermore, this is where the age-old arms debate takes place. How many weapons is enough for someone to defend themselves? The committee is also known to delve into more local threats, tackling whatever is required working towards the goal of international peace. In our model of the DISEC , we wish to tackle the growing concern over the illicit trade and distribution of light weaponry with special emphasis on Latin America.We would encourage the delegates to think of creative and innovative solutions as till now we the peoples of the world have not been able to disarm. The committee will delve into diplomatic agendas that pertain to weapons and areas of militant concern, and aims to increase international security and promote Disarmament on a global level. The committee is scarcely limited in its jurisdiction and works towards making the world a safer place.
