Topic | Arming Space
Since the implosion of the Soviet Union, the space race slowed down and the militarization of space was no more an issue on the political agenda. With the recent announcement of President Trump, to create a “space force” and French ambitions for a “space high command” this has dramatically changed. While attacks on the death-star remain unlikely, it is inevitable for the United Nations to deal with the threats of shifting global conflicts to the orbit. During the Black Forest Summit 2019, the Disarmament and Security Committee (DISEC) will debate on issues related to the emerging military space race to ensure the peaceful exploration and use of outer space.

Hey, my name is Bruno, I am 22 years old and Chair of the DISEC Committee. I have participated in multiple MUN´s over the last years and am a very passionate delegate and MUNer.

I am truly honored to serve as the Committee Chair for United Nations General Assembly First Committee (DISEC) at this year’s edition of KaMUN – The Black Forest Summit. I have been an integral part of the Model United Nations circuit since 2006. In the course of recent history, I have been part various international Model United Nations in the capacity of a Committee Director. These comprises of few of the Europe’s most prestigious MUNs, including Paris International Model United Nations, Hamburg Model United Nations, Rome Model United Nations etc. In general for Model United Nations, engaging in rhetoric on various international affairs and mastering the art of diplomacy along with the committee dynamics is what defines a diplomat. Let’s make KaMUN – The Black Forest Summit 2019 an exciting and adventurous tenure and aim to make the best out of this little time! Looking forward to a great opportunity of making memories!
