Disarmament and International
Security Committee (DISEC)

General Assembly

The purpose of the Disarmament and International Security Committee are to promote the general principles of the United Nations in a concerted effort to preserve an international community of peace and cooperation. Out of this body come resolutions of multilateral arrangements to govern the process of disarmament, the regulation of armaments, and create stability in our complex reality of tension and frequent destability. Established under Article 3 and governed by Article 4 of the UN Charter, the Disarmament and International Security Committee is a central pillar in the General Assembly as this body is the moral authority on issues of global security and peace. This body is so integral to the initial mission and purpose of the UN, that the GA first resolution ever passed in 1946 was within this First Committee on topic of nuclear disarmament. The powers and functions of this body are the same as any other organ of the UN.
