The General Assembly is the main organ of the United Nations and has representation from every UN Member State. Established under Chapter IV of the UN Charter, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) consists of 6 main committees.
Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) is the first committee of the UNGA and deals with disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community and seeks out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime. Its purpose is stated in the Article 11 of the UN Charter: “The General Assembly may consider the general principles of co-operation in the maintenance of international peace and security, including the principles governing disarmament and the regulation of armament.”
Furthermore, DISEC works closely with the United Nations Disarmament Commission and the Geneva-based Conference on Disarmament.
