The VII. Brussels Conference “Supporting the future of Syria and the region” will take place on Thursday 15 June, in Brussels. The Ministerial segment of the annual international event organised by the EU will be preceded by the Day of Dialogue, which will take place on Wednesday 14 June in the European Parliament.


The Conference aims to reiterate EU’s commitment and support for the Syrian people and mobilise humanitarian and financial support to address the growing needs of the affected Syrian population – living in Syria and in neighbouring countries. It also aims to rally the international community’s political and financial support to host communities in the wider region, that have shown solidarity towards displaced people and refugees, such as Lebanon, Jordan, Türkiye, Egypt, and Iraq.


The Conference will also offer a platform to renew international engagement for a political solution to the conflict, in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2254.


The Day of Dialogue will offer a unique platform for civil society from inside Syria, the region, and the diaspora to discuss, through several panels, some of the key challenges faced by the Syrian people. The Dialogue aims at reconfirming and enhancing the political support of the international community for these crucial actors.


The Ministerial will bring together State actors, notably EU Member States, Syria’s neighbouring States, and third countries, as well as representatives from the United Nations and other international organisations. The High Representative 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.
