DISEC Committee Description
- Agenda 1: Exploring safe means of existing nuclear weapon-elimination and the controlling of its future production.
Description: Ever since the revolutionary Trinity Test in 1945, a myriad of threats in relation to nuclear weaponry have come into play with catastrophic potential global fallouts. To prevent the usage of such weaponry in both current and future conflicts, some if not all of the existing nuclear weaponry must be eliminated while ensuring that future production of it is controlled – but how? With a focus on the nine nuclear states and the five non-NPT nations, delegates will debate upon the feasibility, ethical implications, and effectiveness of various means of nuclear weapon management, from high-risk nuclear weapon dismantlement processes to the creation of innovative treaties. Each nuclear weapon made harmless through solutions presented in the committee will act as a crucial piece towards the fostering of peace worldwide, as delegates assist in the avoidance of nuclear destruction leading to humanity’s downfall.
Description: International arms trafficking, referring to the illicit trade of weaponry, is a massive issue, acting as a primary reason for the persistence and casualties amidst transnational conflict. With numerous transnational disputes such as the Kurdish-Turkey conflict in the Middle East, the region with the highest arms trafficking rates, and major arms-trafficking threats involved in the Russia-Ukraine war, this matter holds no boundaries and affects every corner of the world. Therefore, delegates will have to explore a wide array of solutions suitable for both the less economically developed countries (LEDCs) and more economically developed countries (MEDCs), including investment in border security and the controlling of weapon production, and by doing so will be bringing war-stricken nations one step closer to peace.
