Disarmament and International Security Committee


Addressing the utilisation of chemical weaponry with emphasis on the ongoing Syrian Civil War

As the first committee of the United Nations General Assembly, the Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) plays a crucial role in upholding international security and regulating disarmament and weaponry. The widespread and unethical use of chemical weaponry has caused horrific suffering in the 20th century, with some of its effects still felt today. Their usage is fundamentally inhumane, and hence all use of chemical and biological weaponry is prohibited by international law. However, despite these measures, the production and usage of such weapons have yet to be eradicated. Therefore, this iteration of DISEC at DSMUN ‘24 will address the continued use of chemical weapons, particularly in the context of the Syrian Civil War. Delegates will be tasked with proposing solutions to prevent their use and ensure accountability for those responsible, while helping uphold previous conventions and treaties that encompass both the distribution and manufacturing of such weaponry. The Executive Board of DISEC anticipates three days of intellectually stimulating but equally challenging experience for delegates as they engage in collaborative efforts to address this pressing issue.
