The Disarmament and International Security Committee is the First and one of the six

main committees of the United Nations General Assembly. Since the establishment of the

committee in 1933,  DISEC intensely focuses on the matters related to disarmament, global

challenges, and threats to peace that affect the international community. 
The first committee 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.
More than half armed conflicts are located in the Indian Ocean Region. Moreover, through

the years the region has witnessed such evolving strategic developments including the

competing rises of India and China, the nuclear confrontation of India and Pakistan, the

intervention of the US in Iraq and Afghanistan, the growing amount of piracy in and around

the Horn of Africa. 
The delegates of this committee are expected to do comprehensive research upon the

Indian Ocean Region and have extensive knowledge about the declaration of the Indian

Ocean as a Zone of Peace.


This committee is intended for novice delegates.



Committee Board Member of GA:1 DISEC: Muhammet Can Kılıç
