The Article VI Forum is an ongoing series of consultations intended to stimulate and shape effective responses to the crisis of the non-proliferation / disarmament regime manifested by the breakdown of the 2005 NPT Review Conference. The Article VI Forum takes its name from the article of the NPT in which the nuclear states commit themselves to the elimination of their nuclear weapons.
The Dublin consultation was the fifth meeting of the Article VI Forum. Previous consultations were held in New York, The Hague, Ottawa and Vienna. The Governments of Canada and Austria co-sponsored the meetings held in their respective capitals.
