DISEC: First Committee, Disarmament & International Security

Welcome to the First Committee of the General Assembly at SCMUN 2020!

This committee is double delegate.

Committee topics and background guides will be updated shortly.

The First Committee of the General Assembly, the Disarmament and International Security committee (DISEC) deals with topics centered around global issues, threats to peace and international security. Particularly, the committee engages in debates of disarmament and is famously known for its creation in 1946 due to the recent events in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Under DISEC, the General Assembly considers general principles of co-operation in the best interests of international peace and security. Topics of debate in this committee are pressing as the affect of some actions hold magnitude and weight that are perilous and detrimental to all countries.
