Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC)

The Disarmament and International Security Committee, otherwise known as the First General Assembly Committee, functions to handle global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community. The body considers all disarmament and security related matters within the scope of the UN Charter whilst maintaining the general principles of cooperation when discussing matters. It is the only Main Committee of the General Assembly which is entitled to verbatim records coverage.

DISEC_Monika Patriarchea

Monika Patriarchea

Monika is one of the few greek undergraduate students at SciencesPo, currently living the life in London during her exchange year at King’s College. She is still doing MUN even after a real UN experience along with the Greek Mission, so that summarises it to her being pretty obsessed with MUN. 

On a more serious note (cause her co-chair Nick is way too serious in his bio), Monika has previously participated in 21 MUN Conferences and chaired at 11 of them. She chaired UNDP last year but decided to change a bit this year for another exciting OxIMUN conference. What she enjoys the most in MUN conferences is meeting new people from all around the world as she thinks it can only be an enriching cultural experience. 

Apart from MUN, Monika enjoys dancing and doing karaoke with her friends. Travelling though is her true passion.

Nicholas Dodds

Nicholas is currently in his final year studying Corporate Management and Economics at Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany. This will be his 18th MUN conference and his 7th time serving as a Chair.

Before moving to southern Germany to study he attended an international school, which is where his passion for MUN was born. The exposure to cultural diversity from a young age sparked in him the wish to actively partake in programs that would enable him to see more of the world, both by travelling to conferences and seeing issues through the eyes of the people he would meet there.

After having chaired DISEC at OxIMUN last year he is thrilled to return to the conference coming Autumn.

He is an absolute culinary enthusiast, enjoys playing team sports and is part of various musical ensembles.
