“The General Assembly may establish such committees as it deems necessary
for the performance of its functions.”
— Rule 96 of the UNGA Rules of Procedure
The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) is one of the six main committees of the General Assembly of the United Nations. A global forum for countries to address issues of war, armed conflict and militarization, their resolutions carry weight in the political and moral sphere, despite not being legally binding.
As it deals with disarmament and international security matters through fast-paced conflict resolution and revolutionary policy changes, it lies at the forefront of the United Nations General Assembly. It addresses conflicts and threats to international peace and tries to maintain global stability and security. Its efforts are highly influential and often lay the groundwork for resolutions in other committees of the United Nations. Its vast membership makes it an especially important organ for dealing with issues of international scope.
