disarmament and international security committee

Topic: The Growing Relevance of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) in International Security

In order to resolve the political tensions and multitude of security issues the Second World War accentuated, the Disarmament and International Security Committee held its inaugural meeting on January 1946. 

With the cooperation of all 193 UN members, DISEC is currently at the forefront of ensuring international peace on issues ranging from small arms trade to nuclear proliferation, and on platforms such as the Arctic Circle and the digital realm of cyber security. 

As the First Committee of the General Assembly, Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) handles “disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community and seeks out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime”. 

Since DISEC cannot enforce any legally binding resolutions or direct interventions, it manages international security concerns through their promotion of collaborative arrangements, institution of numerous peace treaties, global influence, and recommendations that widen the perspective of the UN. 

To qualify for awards, delegates must email their respective position papers to disec@surreymun.org before 11:59 PM January 31st. 

Backgrounders are currently unavailable.

Cindy Gao
Director

Embarking on her senior year at Little Flower Academy, Cindy is delighted to be serving as the Director of DISEC at SurreyMUN 2019. After attending her first Model United Nations conference only two years ago, she instantly became captivated with the Model UN world. Not just limited to Vancouver, she has also attended conferences in Santa Barbara, Honolulu, Madrid, and Tokyo to delegate. Cindy is eagerly awaiting this year’s iteration of the conference, and would like to invite all delegates to what she is certain will be yet another extraordinary committee this coming February. She is looking forward to meeting everyone!

Jimmy Ma
Assistant Director

Jimmy is honoured to serve as the Chair of DISEC at SurreyMUN 2019 while suffering through eleventh grade at Port Moody Secondary School. Since having his first taste of Model United Nations in his freshman year, he has been captured by the experiences it provides. Jimmy’s opinion of Model United Nations has evolved from the preconceived notion of arguing with strangers for prizes to a haven for debate, meeting like-minded inspired youth, and serving in leadership opportunities. Besides dedicating his time to schoolwork and Model United Nations, Jimmy can be found volunteering for a plethora of organizations, learning the latest K-Pop choreographies or draining his bank account on bubble tea. Jimmy is incredibly excited to meet the delegates of SurreyMUN 2019!

Cathy Hu
Chair

Cathy is a grade 11 student at Fraser Heights Secondary School and is ecstatic to serve as the chair of DISEC at SurreyMUN 2019. After her reluctant entrance into the world of MUN in late Grade 8, Cathy's passion for diplomacy has been kindled by the innumerable conferences that she has participated in. In her spare time - which is minimal due to her constant struggle in understanding the world of math - Cathy can be found travelling, eating, watching every Netflix and anime show, or indulging in poetry. Cathy is looking forward to meeting everyone and creating an unforgettable weekend together. Best of luck to all delegates!
