The eighth edition of the Ministerial Brussels Conference on “Supporting the future of Syria and the region” will take place on Monday 27, in Brussels.


The Ministerial meeting will see the participation of representatives from the EU Member States, Syria’s neighbouring States, and third countries, as well as representatives from the United Nations, international organisations, and Syrian civil society. The High Representative / Vice-President Josep Borrell will co-chair the conference on behalf of the European Union, together with Olivér Várhelyi, Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, and Janez Lenarčič, Commissioner for Crisis Management.


The Ministerial meeting was preceded by a Day of Dialogue with civil society, held already on April 30 in Brussels, with more than 600 participants, including Syrians from all regions of Syria, neighbouring countries and the diaspora, which formulated concrete recommendations for the policy makers. The ministerial section of the Conference, which will receive these recommendations, aims to mobilise vital financial support in order to address the most pressing needs of Syrians and their host communities; and to renew the international community’s support for a political solution in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2254.   


Since 2011, the European Union and its Member States have been the largest donors of humanitarian and resilience assistance to Syria and the region providing over €33 billion in response to the Syrian crisis.
