The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute has published an article about this organisation, The Consortium and its Network aim to support the EU action to support non-proliferation, and its mandate is not limited only to issues relating to weapons of mass destruction (WMD), but also comprises conventional arms, including small arms and light weapons (SALW). To this end, the Consortium can also establish co-operation with specialised institutions and research centres in third countries, in particular in those with which the EU is conducting specific non-proliferation dialogues. The Consortium works through the organisation of expert meetings, a major annual international conference, ad hoc seminars, through the development of a dedicated website and through a family of publications. The Consortium also offers educational tools such as e-learning courses and internships. Finally, upon request, the Consortium provides the EU with ad-hoc expertise through the management of an Help-Desk facility.
