On 22 September 2020 at 11:00 CEST, Caritas international and the Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA) invite to a hybrid on- & offline debate on

The future of aid in Syria


  • Dr Oliver Müller, Head of Caritas international (Ci)
  • Dr Thomas Zahneisen, Commissioner for Humanitarian Assistance, Federal Foreign Office (AA)
  • Dr Salam Said, Syrian economist
  • Dr Muriel Asseburg, Senior Fellow, Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP)

Facilitation: Ralf Südhoff, Director Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA)

With the continuing plight of the people in Syria, the international community is facing big decisions in the tenth year of the crisis:

How can humanitarian aid still be provided in Syria? Which actors can ensure humanitarian principles such as independence and neutrality, also in government areas? And what aid will be appropriate in the future given the great destruction and the continued central role of the Assad government – only the short-term emergency aid? What about the rehabilitation measures for basic infrastructure, such as schools, hospitals, irrigation systems? Or a speedy reconstruction in the interest of the people in need?

We look forward to a lively discussion with you.

Please note that the event will be held in German.

The respective YouTube-Link is going to be sent out to you one day prior the event.
