Cooperating closely with the United Nations Disarmament Commission, Disarmament and International Security Committee faces issues regarding disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community and seeks out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime. It works closely with the UN’s “Office of Disarmament Affairs” on issues ranging from ensuring the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons but also looking at things like biological weapons and the sale of light arms.
DISEC’s first resolution was created in 1946, post the Hiroshima and Nagasaki incident, and was entitled „The Establishment of a Commission to Deal with the Problems Raised by the Discovery of Atomic Energy.”
Until 1978, this committee was known as the Political and Security Committee (POLISEC).
