The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) deals with disarmament, threats to peace, and challenges that affect the global community – seeking out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime.
It considers all disarmament and international security matters within the scope of the UN Charter, or relating to the powers and functions of any other organ of the United Nations. The general principles of DISEC include cooperation in the maintenance of international peace and security, promotion of cooperative arrangements to find beneficial solutions through dialogue and implementation of measures aimed at strengthening stability through the control of weapon contractors. It also aims to prevent cyber-warfare, activation of biological and nuclear weapons of mass destruction and terrorism.
DISEC is one of six main committees at the General Assembly of the United Nations. Being the First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, the sessions of this committee are held after the General Assembly General Debate, and all 193 member states of the UN can attend them.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) was established to assist the United Nations in better addressing a coordinated, comprehensive response to the interrelated issues of illicit trafficking and abuse of drugs, crime prevention and criminal justice, international terrorism and political corruption.
UNODC was established by combining the United Nations International Drug Control Program (UNDCP) and the Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Division in the United Nations Office at Vienna. It is a member of the United Nations Development Group.
The main areas of support of UNODC are: border management and counter trafficking, criminal justice, and drug demand reduction. In order to achieve these objectives, UNODC enhances core capacities of law enforcement agencies to reduce illicit traffic and manage borders, primarily by providing training and equipment; provides assistance to build the capacities of the police, prosecution, prisons and reclamation and probation departments; and supports the Government’s capacity to plan, resource and implement drug use treatment, rehabilitation and comprehensive harm reduction services.
