Rapid Expert Assistance and Co-operation Teams for Conflict Prevention, Crisis Management and Post-Conflict Rehabilitation (REACT)
The REACT course is a six-week training programme on international peace operations intended for professionals interested in improving their knowledge of conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation, as well as to develop practical skills for their work in the field.
REACT was created in 2003 with the aim to prepare professionals of different profiles, interested in joining the Expert Teams for Rapid Assistance and Cooperation of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
Over time, the content of the course has been adapted to the needs and realities of other international and regional organizations including the United Nations.
REACT is the only training course of its kind that takes place in Spain. Since its inception, 20 editions have been taken place and over 400 students have benefit from it. Next course will take place in May 17th.
