This Spring, the European Union will organise and host in Brussels the eighth Brussels Conference on “Supporting the future of Syria and the region”.

After over thirteen years of conflict, the EU remains committed to the Syrian people. This year’s edition of the Conference will redouble efforts to listen to Syrian voices, in Syria, in the region and from the diaspora. The dire situation in Syria and in the region only confirms the need to find a sustainable, peaceful solution, in line with UNSCR 2254.

“A comprehensive political solution brokered through the UN, and enjoying the full support of all its members, remains the ultimate imperative: the Syrian people must get a chance to live in dignity and peace. That is what the EU is working for, standing with the Syrian people until that prospect – however distant it may sometimes appear – will be fulfilled.”

Josep Borrell, EU High Representative, Vice-President of the European Commission

This year again, the Conference will feature a Day of Dialogue, engaging with Syrian civil society, on 30 April in the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels; and a Ministerial Segment on 27 May in the premises of the EU Council; as well as a number of side events and a dedicated cultural programme.
