Consortium Activities

Besides the construction of a website and the upkeep of editorial content on line that deals with the non-proliferation of both conventional and non-conventional weapons, the EU Consortium on non-proliferation has two principal objectives: firstly, to encourage a lively debate amongst research experts in the field from various different EU member countries, and secondly to produce specific analyses and studies for the benefit of European institutions, Member States and civil society.

The EU Consortium on non-proliferation organises several kinds of events: an annual international conference, consultative meetings, ad hoc seminars. The ultimate goal of these symposia is to provide decision makers with operational solutions regarding the principal issues of counter-proliferation. A collection of specific policy papers (Non-Proliferation Papers) to complement the Consortium meetings is also edited, published, and freely accessible on the website along with a bi-monthly newsletter ( and a series of focus pages (Focus).
