“It is not the Soviet Union or indeed any other big Powers who need the United Nations for their protection. It is all the others.”
– Dag Hammarskjöld, UN Secretary-General 1953-1961
DISEC deals with disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community. It attempts to find solutions to the challenges in the international security regime.
It considers all matters of disarmament and international security, within the scope of the Charter or relating to the powers and functions of other organs of the UN, as well as cooperation in the maintenance of international peace and security, and principles governing disarmament and the regulation of armaments.

Hi everyone, my name is Amy and it is my pleasure to be chairing DISEC for you at CologneMUN! I did my Bachelor’s at the University of Zurich and will be starting my Master’s at King’s College London in September doing Philosophy. MUN has become a big part of my life ever since I started doing it in 2016. I have made some of my favourite memories and met some of my best friends at MUN conferences. I’ve been a delegate for DISEC many times before, such as at Cuimun and Oximun, and recently chaired DISEC at our home conference in Zurich. Perhaps a fun story to finish off this short introduction: This photo was taken by Natalie Joray, who is chairing ICJ at CologneMUN this year, during a four-cabinet crisis on the Napoleonic Wars in Zurich, where I was informed that my directives were some of the best, even though I can firmly say I had absolutely no idea what I was doing! I’m looking forward to meeting you all In Köln soon and do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions about DISEC or myself.
