The European Union and the United Nations will co-chair the fourth Brussels Conference on “Supporting the future of Syria and the region”, which will take place on 30 June 2020. In light of the necessary social distancing measures, the Conference will be held in a virtual format.
The Conference’s Ministerial meeting will take place on 30 June and will be web-streamed. Events will already start the week before.
The Conference’s Days of Dialogue Side Events will take place on 22 and 23 June, allowing to pursue dialogue between civil society, NGOs, International Organisations, refugee-hosting countries, the EU and the UN community.
Virtual civil society consultations
In light of the social distancing measures in place in Europe and the Middle East, this year's consultations with civil society organisations active in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and elsewhere in the region will be held online ahead of the conference.
The aim of these consultations is to gather recommendations on key issues affecting the Syrian people and their possible solutions, so to streamline the international community’s response to the conflict and mobilise the necessary resources. These recommendations will feed into the Ministerial event on 30 June.
The Conference schedule, including side events, will be released in the next few days. Please check this page for regular updates.
