DISEC (Disarmament and International Security Committee) deals with topics that center around disarmament, global issues, and threats . Under Article 11 of Chapter IV 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.” This committee will seek to manage and offer guidance on the numerous armed conflicts around the globe. Arguments are often heavy as states jostle to have their interests brought forward ahead of others.
DISEC is designed as a committee for first-timers and veterans of MUN events. DISEC will adopt the standard THIMUN protocol.
ADDRESSING THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN
The Israel-Palestinian Conflict has created major chaos in the region and caused a great political divide regarding a diplomatic solution since the birth of Israel in 1948. It has been the leading cause of 5 major wars and numerous minor conflicts including several uprisings by Palestinians between the Israeli and Arab powers within the Middle East and continues to cause tension throughout the Middle East.
As delegates, in order to reach a peace deal you must contend with any number of the following concerns: final border lines, Israeli settlements, Palestinian political violence, Palestinian refugees, the Status of Jerusalem and Zionist political violence.
Evan has been participating in MUN conferences since his first year in high school and is now a freshman in college. He has attended DYNAMUN 3 times as a delegate, co-chair, and chair. This year, he feels honoured to join DYNAMUN again with a whole new position, director. With his chair and co-chair, he hopes to bring an unforgettable experience to all delegates in DISEC.
Bonnie is currently an eleventh grader at Hui Wen high school. It’s her greatest honor to serve as you co-chair for DYNAMUN, and she hope every single delegate enjoys this year's conference. If any delegate enters this conference worried, she emphasizes that you shouldn’t be. She herself was a delegate in DYNAMUN last year and for her it was a very interesting and engaging experience. If delegates have any questions throughout the conference, she encourages them to not hesitate to ask any of the Dais teams for help. They are all more than willing to help out any first-time or returning MUNners with their experience.
