Peace and Security in Africa
Disarmament and International Security (DISEC) is the first committee out of the six committees of the United Nations General Assembly. Disarmament and any threats to international peace concern the committee and it searches effective solutions to the conflicts threaten international security. DISEC works to prevent and remove any threats to the international peace and security within the scope of the United Nations Charter.
As part of this background, in this meeting of DISEC, the delegates are going to discuss about “Peace and Security in Africa”. Especially in the last decade, economic or political instabilities, violent conflicts, humanitarian crises and many other events prevented a peaceful and secure Africa. The region has witnessed coups, coup attempts, civil wars, rise of terrorist groups and attacks which distracted the nations from the long desired and deserved peaceful and secured world. As a committee of United Nations General Assembly which relies on its Members’ collective request for international peace, DISEC is going to confer the roots of the issues at hand and the current situation in the region, as well as possible solutions considering the well-being of the people of Africa.
