The EU and Syria: thinking about ways forward

30/06/2020, Webinar


The civil war in Syria has entered into its 10th year, but the European Union remains on its sidelines. While committed to humanitarian needs of Syrians, no re-assessment of EU’s policies and measures implemented on Syria in the last ten years has been advanced by European leaders on this ongoing war in its immediate neighborhood.
