Ahead of the second Brussels Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region, the European Union ran an online consultation in February 2018 to seek the views of organisations working in Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan. The consultation sought partners' views on potential themes for the conference, key challenges, lessons learned and best practice, and included a separate question on social cohesion between refugee and host communities. 108 responses to the consultation were received. A qualitative analysis of responses was undertaken, considering responses from Syria and host countries separately before comparing the results to identify cross-cutting issues. This document is a summary of the key findings of this analysis.

Key themes and challenges

The consultation sought views on themes for conference events, proposing possible themes for consideration: protection, health, education, access, resilience, transitional justice and livelihoods.
