The NATO Defense College celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the NATO Regional Cooperation Course and the Graduation Ceremony of NRCC-22

The NATO Regional Cooperation Course (NRCC) was founded in 2009, following a decision taken by Alliance Heads of State and Government at the Riga Summit in November 2006. It represents the Alliance’s major educational outreach towards Mediterranean Dialogue (MD) and Istanbul Cooperation Initiative (ICI) countries, and partners from the Middle East region. Taking place twice a year, this ten weeks Course has been developed to promote closer dialogue and increased cooperation in the field of education; to aim at more broadly linking issues of concern to both MD, ICI nations and NATO; and to develop mutual understanding and networking amongst participants.
