Created in 1945 following the atrocities witnessed in World War Two, the Disarmament and International Security Committee maintains international security and stability. As the First Committee of the United Nations, all 193 members of DISEC play an integral role in maintaining world peace.

Ever since its first resolution on the “Establishment of a Commission to Deal with the Problems Raised by the Discovery of Atomic Energy”, DISEC has grown to encompass a plethora of pressing international issues ranging from asymmetric warfare to cybersecurity. Although unable to make binding resolutions, DISEC is able to recommend effective solutions that broaden the limited scope of the UNSC. Unique to DISEC is its entitlement to verbatim records coverage, the only Main Committee of the General Assembly able to do so. Its size and scope make it an invaluable organ of the United Nations, offering multifaceted opinions on far-reaching international issues. The considerations and recommendations that DISEC, as part of the General Assembly, is able to offer, are crucial to the UN.
