UN Disarmament and International Security (DISEC) Director: NICHOLAS ANDREWS
The Disarmament and International Security committee (DISEC) is the first committee created by the United Nations shortly after its founding in 1945. It deals mainly 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. The committee sessions are structured into three distinctive stages: 1. General Debate 2. Thematic Discussions 3. Action on Drafts.
