It considers all this issues within the scope of the Charter or relating to the powers and functions of any other organ of the United Nations; DISEC promotes also cooperative arrangements and measures in order to strengthen stability through lower levels of armaments.
Topic A: Counter terrorism in the Sahel Region

Daphné is a 19-year-old French student in international relations at the Institute of International Relations in Paris. Fascinated by all the work done at the United Nations and curious to discover new places, she attended several MUN conferences in Europe and in the United States. Outside the universe of MUNs, Daphné likes to hold discussions on Europe, hang out in the coolest places of Paris, or eat good food (even though she does not like most of the French culinary specialties). She is very excited to be part of the DISEC Chairing team for HamMUN 2018!
Youri Moes will be chairing the DISEC Committee in HamMUN 2018. Having more than 6 years of MUN experience behind him, participating in conferences in Europe and Asia he is excited to see his first ever HamMUN conference. Currently, he lives in The Hague and spent the last year training delegates and running the MUN society of Leiden University in that city. In the last year, he has been working hard to chair as much as he could afford to, chairing in conferences throughout the Netherlands, and in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The most important thing to remember, according to him is “there are no small countries, just small delegates.”
Marko Luković is originally from a small village in Serbia. He lives in Germany right now and is on the verge of finishing my BA thesis as of writing this. MUNs caught his interest at the tender age of 16, maintaining the MUN marathon ever since. While a philologist by trade, the international relations at MUNs are what keeps him going: speaking many different languages and getting to know a vast spectrum of cultures at the conferences. Next to MUNs, he is part-time funny as a comic and occasionally plays videogames. Pay attention when trying to gossip behind his back – chances are with 7 languages and counting, he should understand you.
