Disarmament and International Security (DISEC)

Topic: Disarmament of Militant Non-State Actors in the Middle East


12.4 million people in the Middle East and North Africa have been displaced due to instability and conflict between non-state actors and governments. Hundreds of thousands more have had their livelihoods, homes and even lives destroyed by non-state actors. Many more had seen the once stable nature of their homes turned into battlegrounds, with mines littering the fields and children holding guns, fighting to their deaths. But as the conflicts in the Middle East begin to die down, the arms carried by non-state actors must be disarmed to prevent any egregious harm to non-combatants. The Disarmament and International Security Committee shall focus on disarming and reaching a peaceful agreement with non-state actors in the Middle East, restoring peace to areas wrought with the destruction of vital infrastructure and forced conscription of civilians into militias and terrorist groups. This committee shall also focus on the long term prevention of military-grade heavy weapons and retooled civilian vehicles from entering the hands of both terrorist organizations and militant non-state actors. The committee shall mainly focus on disarming non-state actors such as but not limited to the PJAK, Hezbollah, Hamas, ISIL and Al Qaeda.
