DISARMAMENT AND INTERNATIONAL SECURITY COMMITTEE (DISEC):
AGENDA: EFFECT AND REVIEW OF THE TREATY ON PROHIBITION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
On 6th August, 1945, the first nuclear bomb was dropped over Hiroshima. The greatest destruction humanity has ever witnessed destroyed an entire city. 3 days later, Nagasaki met the same fate. Today, the world’s most powerful and polarized nations hold onto scores of nuclear weapons with several times the destructive capability as the bombs used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There is no doubt that the world cannot survive their widespread use. In a world where even rogue nations like North Korea hold the keys to nuclear disaster, how can humanity safeguard against the quickest route to our destruction? The United Nations General Assembly discussed one pathway forward; the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons showcases the goal of complete elimination of the nuclear threat. Though no nuclear armed threat has expressed support for the ban, is there any other way to safeguard humanity’s future? Is an agreement to put the risks aside, and cooperate to find a safe future possible?
Presenting to you, the Disarmament and International Security Committee.
