The OSCE Dublin Ministerial Council initiated the "Helsinki +40 Process" as “an inclusive effort by all participating States to provide strong and continuous political impetus to advancing work towards a security community, and further strengthening co-operation in the OSCE on the way towards 2015”. 
The process was launched at the beginning of 2013 under the Ukrainian Chairmanship, which established the informal Helsinki +40 Working Group at the level of permanent representatives of the OSCE participating States.
The Helsinki +40 process started with an orientation  debate aimed at assessing threats and challenges in the OSCE space, the Organization’s place in the modern security architecture, and potential areas where its role could be strengthened to keep up with the security challenges of the 21st century.
