In the framework of the upcoming 5th Brussels Conference ‘Supporting the future of Syria and the region’ on 29-30 March, the Commission launched a virtual consultation with civil society organisations to gather recommendations on key issues affecting the civil society, people inside Syria, Syrian refugees and hosting communities in the neighbouring countries. The survey remains open until 2 March. In parallel, EU Delegations and the United Nations are organising discussions with civil society actors in Syria and the region. The outcomes of these consultations will be presented during the Conference and will contribute to shape the international community’s response and ensure its relevance. Co-chaired by the EU and the United Nations, the Conference will consist of the Day of Dialogue with civil society (29 March) and the Ministerial meeting (30 March).
