The Disarmament Commission issues for AISMUN 2018 are:
Issue #1. The use of non violent methods to fight terrorism in Africa and the Middle East.
Terrorism is now one of the major conflicts that are affecting the world as a whole. The attacks and spread of terrorism have destroyed certain countries and hindered their economies. Since the uprise of ISIS, the entire world is working hand in hand to stop the group's efforts in demolishing the peace that is present. The statistics regarding terrorism are usually linking back to the Middle East and Africa. This is true due to the economic state of some of these countries that would end up turning its citizens into terrorist group recruitment. Unfortunately, a large percentage of people believe that the ideal way to take revenge on terrorist groups and dismantle them is by using violent methods such as, bombing their camps or killing them after their captivation. Although, in certain cases, violent methods are required there are still numerous strategies and procedures that can eliminate terrorism without using violence. One of the most evident non-violent methods that can decrease the amount of terrorism is increasing different means of security and working closer to enrich the economy which is tightly connected to reducing the influence on others which drops the number of terrorist recruits.
Issue #2. Helping those displaced due to the effects of terrorism.
One of the effects of terrorism is destroying cities and towns forcing its citizens to abandon their homes and lives and venture to find a new one. In most cases especially for Arabs the new life is seen in the promised land of opportunities which is Europe. This leads to them taking several uncertified measures such as traveling by sea to seek refuge in Greece and then heading to Italy or France or even obtaining a tourist visa and breaking the expiry date abroad. Unfortunately, these people aren't doing this willingly they are obliged to leave their home in order to secure themselves a better life and become safe. However, even after leaving their cities some don't reach a secure destination and are still dealing with the effects of terrorism in that area. Thankfully, organizations such as UNHCR is working to solve this problem by aiding some of these people that can't reach a peaceful home with providing them shelters and resources to encourage them to move and find a stable home.
Issue #3. Preparation for the threat of future nuclear terrorist attacks.
Nuclear terrorist attacks are becoming one of the major threats in the world that threaten the sovereignty and safety of numerous countries. Unfortunately, countries such as North Korea have been developing their nuclear program more intensely and have shown the power they have through the nuclear missile tests. These tests were also seen as a threat to the sovereignty of other countries such as the U.S. In addition, with the amount of resources that the terrorist groups have that include money, territory, and global network they have the ability to develop nuclear bombs very easily. Furthermore, terrorist groups can just easily attack nuclear facilities and strike a nuclear power reactor that would release a massive radioactivity waves that would end up contaminating hundreds or thousands of square miles. At any time, these nuclear weapons could fall under the hand of terrorists which means that countries should start to put certain procedures and preparations in order to prevent or handle any possible nuclear terrorist attack.
