Key Messages for the Sixth Brussels Syria Conference

DSP developed key messages for the 6th ‘Supporting the future of Syria and the region’ Conference in Brussels, that took place in late May 2022. Twelve years into Syrians’ displacement, it is vital to refocus and regain momentum on what durable solutions in the Middle East can and should look like by combining innovative policies and interventions that further pathways to durable solutions. This includes revitalizing discussions on effective responsibility-sharing approaches, and looking at resettlement and complementary pathways rather than solely focusing on returns.DSP donors, international financial institutions, refugee host governments and NGOs need to critically evaluate the design and implementation of the humanitarian-development-peacebuilding nexus (HDPN) and the financing tools and modalities for protracted displacement that most effectively support self-reliance, resilience and social cohesion.
