The Disarmament and International Security Committee was created as the first of the Main Committees in the General Assembly when the UN Charter was signed in 1945. Thus, DISEC is often referred to as the First Committee. GA1 deals with regulation of armaments and weapons trading as well as issues that pose a threat to international security. In GA1, delegates find solutions to issues concerning illicit arms trading and production and try to prevent the impacts of arms trading and production therefore improving international security around the world. They could also suggest specific topics for Security Council consideration.
