Letter from the Chair
Welcome to BruinMUN 2016. My name is Axel Sarkissian, and I will be serving as chair for the First Committee of the General Assembly at this year’s conference. As always, DISEC is poised to be a fast-paced and challenging committee, and I look forward to a weekend of excellent debate.
I am a Los Angeles native and a sophomore at UCLA. Outside of staffing UCLA’s Model UN conferences, I compete often with our intercollegiate MUN team. I study Political Science, with a concentration in International Relations; I am also pursuing a minor in Public Affairs.
This year’s topics grapple with some of the world’s most pressing issues. Delegates will examine both the spread and use of nuclear technologies and the demobilization of non-state armed groups, and will be challenged to find equitable solutions to complex problems that face all member states.
If you have any questions about the content of this background guide or committee in general, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you this coming November.
