DISEC (DISARMAMENT and INTERNATIONAL SECURITY COMMITTEE) – Foreign Military Intervention in Internal Conflicts


The United Nations General Assembly First Committee, so known as the Disarmament and International Security Committee or DISEC, is one of six main committees at the General Assembly of the United Nations. It deals with disarmament and international security matters.

Since it is a General Assembly committee, all 193 members of the UN can participate during the sessions, but the decisions taken are classified as advisory. Since the power to implement sanctions only complies with the Security Council, DISEC can give advisory choices to its member states. Even though decisions taken are advisory, DISEC can create customary practices like the rest of the GA committees. If the DISEC decides upon a topic unanimously creation of a conventional method is likely. Thus, the DISEC member states are expected to perform their best to work cohesively. These cohesive efforts can make changes more effectively in the days of military conflicts and political disagreements. Change is slow always has been and still will be, but on the days of armament races and political conflicts, perhaps the delegates should change the problematic environment imminently.
