Welcome to the REACT Course Blog


The REACT course (Rapid Expert Assistance and Co-operation for Conflict Prevention Operations, Crisis Management and Post-Conflict Rehabilitation (REACT)) is a professional, intensive and practical training aimed to prepare professionals from any field to work on Humanitarian missions, post conflict, rehabilitation, conflict prevention or any other crisis situation with International Organizations, Governements or NGO’s.

This course began on May 2003 with the support of Banco Santander Foundation and since then over 350 professionals have become REACT alumni.

The prupose of this blog is to give a word to those that wanted to make a better world and, also thanks to this training, are now able to do it.

Thank you to all of you: speakers, funders, and students, for helping us to create a REACT community during the years, and raise the quality of this wonderful project.

María Jaén.
Program Director at Helsinki España
